    Disquiet Junto Project 0072: Domestic Score

    I have a small cast brass doorbell with a pull chain – has a lot of character when put through simple granular synthesis.

    The first intrusive sound is the noise my computer fan makes when turned on, a bit like a muted coffee grinder! The other is taken from the high-pitched three pips that my fridge gives out when the door is left open.

    All mixed, stretched and mashed together, hopefully still with their sonic signatures intact.


    This week’s project is based on field recordings of wherever it is that you live. The goal is to produce a relaxing score to your domestic life by employing noises that intrude on that life.

    Step 1: Make a recording of your doorbell, or whatever noise it is that someone would make when announcing their arrival at your residence. If you don’t have a functioning doorbell, then, for example, record the sound of a knock on your door.

    Step 2: Record between one and three additional sounds that intrude on your life: your phone’s ring, perhaps, or the alarm on your microwave oven.

    Step 3: You will now have between one and four sounds recorded. Using those sounds as source material, compose a new, original piece of music that could easily be described as gentle or meditative. You can transform them as much as you choose, but each should in some way still be evident and recognizable in the mix. You cannot add any other sounds to the project.
