Disquiet Junto Project 55 - [disquiet0055-twoscrews] by Be a Waterwolf J. Lemont published on 2013/01/22 04:52:31 +0000 There are pitch and duration changes all over the place, and I hope it is listenable. I developed a mindset quickly into the process that I wanted a 'Mikrokosmos' sound (early/less-difficult volumes) - this shaded the process for me, in that the original clarity of sound would be something I'd be worrying about least. The short figure at ~0:09 in is what initially made me think of Bartok. Just like with constant reminders of something that happened or was said on "The Simpsons" - anything little thing can easily make one think of Bartok. - - - - This week's project involves a shared set of source material. The source audio is the free solo piano album 'Screws' by Nils Frahm. Frahm, who's based in Germany, posted the nine-track album of short solo works for free download while he was recuperating from busting one of his thumbs. He subsequently created a site to house all the remixed/reworked versions that admirers sent to him, as well as the videos and other responses that he received. For this project you will take two of the source tracks — "Do" and "Re" — and create a new track from them, in the process creating a work for two pianos. Source Audio: You can download the files as sets of MP3 or AIF audio: public.erasedtapes.com/screws/ERATP0…crews_mp3.zip public.erasedtapes.com/screws/ERATP0…crews_aif.zip Or download the individual file directly from their links here: soundcloud.com/erasedtapes/sets/nils-frahm-screws You can only use those two Frahm tracks as audio source material for your track, and you cannot add anything other sounds, but you can transform the two Frahm tracks as you please. In the end, though, the sound of a piano should be evident.
