Disquiet Junto Project 0103: Tinsel Song
This week’s project, the 103rd, is based on last week's, the 102nd. The instructions are as follows:
Step 1: Select three different works from last week's project, as collected at this URL:
Step 2: Label them Source A, B, and C.
Step 3: Create an underlying foundation for a song by creating a loop-able segment structured as follows: four beats of Source A, four beats of Source B, four beats of Source A, four beats of Source C.
Step 4: Let that loop repeat twice before introducing any additional elements.
Step 5: Continue to loop the segment and augment/distort/filter it as you so desire, and introduce any additional material, toward the goal of creating an original piece of music.
Bonus Round: If you are inclined, create a chorus for the song by holding Source B for an extended period of time, and create a bridge by holding Source C for an extended period of time. Again, feel free to augment/distort/filter them.
Deadline: Monday, December 23, 2013, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your track’s length should be between 1 and four minutes.
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: Include the term “disquiet0103-tinselsong” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: Please consider employing a license that allows for attributed, commerce-free remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).
