This track is entirely sounds from 3 tunes off the Japanese Bump Foot netlabel. (Not sure if we were free to add our own sounds for this week's Junto, but I liked the challenge.) Links to the Disquiet Junto instructions are down below my description...
From "Bongo" I only took a muffled bass stab, transposed a few times through the track.
From "The Cat In The Ocean" I took the guitar lick that comes up throughout. I've stretched it out to suit the tempo I had in mind and EQed it, but otherwise it's intact.
All other sounds are (duh) from "Broken Robots". I cut out tiny bits of percussive sound and tweaked them a lot to make the drum sounds. Lots of transposing, etc.
The chord stabs and so on are a 4-bar loop played at half-speed, with some tape stop-start effects made by messing with the tempo in AudioMulch while the loop was set to automatically stretch to match tempo. I exported that stuff and chopped it up to try to get it in time with the beat I'd written.
This Disquiet Junto project was done as a celebration of the efforts of the Bump Foot netlabel, and to support its employment of licenses that allow for derivative works. These Junto netlabel remix projects are intended to promote reworking as itself a means of music distribution. This track is comprised of three pieces of music, all originally released on Bump Foot: "Bongo" off the Aguas Tonicas album titled Los Desposeídos, "Broken Robots" off the Gridline album titled Red Music, and "The Cat in the Ocean" off the Pics Frunk album titled Low Voltage.
