This is a remix for the Disquiet Junto. It is comprised of other projects/remixes from previous entries for the Junto.
I used the following tracks (from the Wax Cylinder remix project a few weeks ago):
Time For Change [disquiet0006-cylinder] by dustmotes;
Generations (disquiet0006-cylinder) by High Tunnels;
a few elements from this (from the 'Subtraction' project, removing elements from a recording of waves):
Jet Jaguar - Tide's Out [disquiet0007-subtract] by Jet Jaguar (NZ);
and quite a bit from this excellent interview with Marc Weidenbaum, moderator/curator/creator of the Disquiet Junto:
SoundCloud Speaks - 001 - Disquiet/Marc Weidenbaum by SoundCloud Community Team
I cut the above tracks up in Audacity, and fed them to my Korg Electribe ES1, which I used to manipulate and sequence the samples. My aim was to deconstruct the interview into a mixture of nonsense and a kind of bizarre comment on the remix itself (i.e. the one I have posted here).
No other instruments were added - everything is sampled from one of the above tracks and played through the Electribe.
I had originally planned to use the above tracks to make a hip-hop track to share with the Disquiet Junto, but I couldn't find (or produce!) any suitable vocals. I had made some small progess in Ardour when this week's assignment was set, so I decided to abandon it in favour of this. I ended up using some of the same samples but doing doing everything else from scratch.
The image is NOT porn or anything unsettling; it's the wax floating in a lava lamp, from here:
The original instructions for this project were as follows:
"The tenth Junto provides an opportunity to reflect on what the group's participants have accomplished in the past nine weeks. The project is as follows: all participants will produce a remix of any track of their liking from any of the past projects (that is, any of the tracks from projects 0001 through 0009). One clarification: please make certain that the track you select is eligible for remixing. If you're not sure, contact either the musician (via "Send Message" within Soundcloud) or me (at firstname.lastname@example.org) for confirmation. There is one additional track option; you can remix the recent Soundcloud podcast that was about the Junto."
