Illustration for article titled Turn Your Week's Dayplanner into Music

Each Thursday at the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.com a new compositional challenge is set before the group’s members, who then have just over four days to upload a track in response to the assignment. Membership in the Junto is open: just join and participate.

This project was published in the evening, California time, on Thursday, February 20, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, February 24, 2014, as the deadline.


These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):

Disquiet Junto Project 0112: Calendrical Score

This week’s instruction is simple: Your past week’s calendar (February 13 – February 19) is your score. Each hour is a note or chord. Each quarter day is a measure. Please post an image of your calendar in the process — feel free, of course, to block out anything personal you don’t want to share.

Deadline: Monday, February 24, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.

Length: Your finished work should be between 2 minute and 5 minutes.

Information: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, include a description of your process in planning, composing, and recording it. This description is an essential element of the communicative process inherent in the Disquiet Junto.


Title/Tag: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0112-calendrical” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.

Download: It is preferable that your track is set as downloadable, and that it allows for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).


Linking: When posting the track, be sure to include this information:
