Disquiet Junto Project 0134: Music from Choreography
Compose music to accompany one minute of a dance video by Cori Marquis.
The instructions are available in English, French, and Italian — the two translations courtesy of, respectively, Éric Legendre and Claudio Gallo (twitter.com/daualset). The translations are at the disquiet.com post.

2: Choose a random number from 0 to 8. One option is to use this following link, which will automatically generate a result:
3: Your one-minute segment begins with the number resulting from Step 2. For example, if you get the number 6, then you compose from 06:00 through 06:59. If you get the number 0, then you compose from 00:00 through 00:59.
4: When you are done, upload the track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud, following the directions below.
Note: Please note that participating in this project means you understand that Marquis may employ some of the music you produce in a final cut of the video, and she may edit the music.
