Disquiet Junto Project 0068: [disquiet0068-deriv]
Like Justin Buckley I was feeling creative when the disquiet email arrived, so I got straight into it.
I wanted to do my usual stretch/atmospheric/drone/ambient thing, but with a difference, so each track got a radically different treatment.
First up, the section of “Libertarian Entertainment Automaton” was actually compressed by increasing its tempo (down to about 7 seconds), then cloned over and over to produce a warbling, glitch “rhythm” track. This was then double-tracked and each was given different values of echo and delay, the second also being pitch altered down a full tone as well as being moved out of phase.
The “Immaterial Girl” section was doubled, with the second half reversed, then stretched at high resolution so it produced a balanced "palindrone"; the end of this was given a sliding time shift, producing that fading organ-like tone you hear at the end.
The “The Find Beauty, Even in the Mundane” excerpt was simply given increased tempo, which broke it up into a jagged drone. This was cut into sections and laid in different tracks, each being treated with different harmonic and delay plugins. The final offcut was stretched as a deep, underlying and uneven drone resembling a ram’s horn.
Then a couple of short sections of a few seconds were extracted and stretched to add a metallic buzz at each end, separated by an octave.
Then I had dinner and a couple of drinks, which explains the awful title, which was originally <i>Deriving Miss Delay-sey</i>.
The picture was obtained by putting the track title into Google images. Gotta love the net…
This is a shared-sample project. Create a single new piece of music by employing the selected material (see below) of each the following three tracks. All three were initially released on the new netlabel deriv.cc, and were posted to the Internet with a Creative Commons license encouraging derivative reworking. In fact, the impetus for the label, which was founded by C. Reider, was to draw attention to the intrinsic benefits of allowing for derivative works. Like deriv.cc, this project — one in an ongoing series of netlabel remixes undertaken by the Disquiet Junto — is intended to address the unfortunate popularity of “ND” (i.e., “no derivatives”) licenses among netlabels. Please only use the following material in your piece; you can transform in any way you choose, but do not introduce any new source material.
1: The final 20 seconds of “The Find Beauty, Even in the Mundane”:
2: The first 20 seconds of “Immaterial Girl”:
3: The portion of “Libertarian Entertainment Automaton” that runs from 1:10 to 1:30:
Deadline: Monday, April 22, 2013, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your track should have a duration of between two minutes and five minutes.
