Disquiet Junto Project 0133: Six-Note Song
The project is this: Compose a song that consists of just six notes. There should just be one short passage, with one “voice,” on whatever instrument you elect to use.
When you are done, upload the track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud, following the directions below.
Background: The idea of a “six-word story” was spurred by a reported challenge from Ernest Hemingway, who supposedly — though perhaps apocryphally — wrote the following when dared to be as brief as possible: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
Deadline: Monday, July 21, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: The length of your finished work will likely be under one minute.
Information: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, include a description of your process in planning, composing, and recording it. This description is an essential element of the communicative process inherent in the Disquiet Junto.
Title/Tag: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0133-sixnotesong″ in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: It is preferable that your track is set as downloadable, and that it allows for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).
Linking: When posting the track, please be sure to include this information:
