REAK △ Sanca Birawa △ Transe in Indonesia by Les Cartes Postales Sonores

Here's something you don't hear everyday! A field recording from the outskirts of Bandung in West Java in Indonesia. "REAK, a ritual from an animistic past clinging to an urban present," according to the liner notes. Music propels the participants into a deep trance, exchanging consciousness for an invisible, wild spirit, a transition from human to animal consciousness. This hour-long sonic journey was captured by Les Cartes Postales Sonores, and this bit of audio ephemera from the other side of the globe is shared below, on its own album page, and on Bandcamp. You can listen to the tracks below, or watch this short documentary about it:

As Real As It Gets: Disquiet Junto's Online Sound-Making Community @ ApexArt Gallery (Interview & MP3s)

Shawn Wolfe, Vending Machineries, 2001 from As Real As It Gets organized by Rob Walker at Apex Art Gallery, NYC. The exhibit hosts a Disquiet Junto performance on Tuesday Nov 27th 6:30pm

Disquiet Junto is an interactive project from Disquiet.com, Marc Weidenbaum's long-standing website about ambient music, electronic audio and creative technology.

The Junto is an online collective that is open to your participation as its members create sonic responses to a weekly set of creative constraints. Assignments start with anything from the sound of ice cubes to the sound of your own trash. Subtractive audio processing, archival Edison Cylinders, Creative Commons netlabels, the sounds of Hurricane Sandy, fake field recordings, and remixes of the Junto itself are just a few of the prompts for this project that is showing no sign of slowing down.

Disquiet Junto recently surpassed 1500 tracks, and Marc selected a sampler for the Free Music Archive. It begins with two industrialized remixes composed of soundscapes from retails spaces, followed by two actual soundscapes from retail spaces, and concludes with two artificially created soundscapes of imaginary retail spaces.

The  Disquiet Junto has also spawned a concert series, including a performance this Tuesday Nov 27th at NYC's Apex Art gallery (part of Rob Walker's 'As Real As It Gets' exhibit), and Dec 6th at San Francisco's Luggage Store Gallery.

I interviewed Disquiet's Marc Weidenbaum by email.

What inspired you to start the Disquiet Junto and how does it compare to some of the other projects you've curated in the past like Instagr/am/bient and Our Lives in the Bush of Disquiet?

Each of these larger-scale projects you mention results from a combination of observations and impulses, and it's probably easiest to track the progression starting with the first of them: Our Lives in the Bush of Disquiet. That compilation was released for free download in 2006, ten years after I started Disquiet.com. It happened not as a plan but as the result of an impression, and a desire. Brian Eno and David Byrne had released stems, which is to say chunks, of songs off their landmark My Life in the Bush of Ghosts album to celebrate its anniversary, and they invited listeners to rework the material and post it on a website they'd set up. I didn't find much to enjoy amid what I heard, and it occurred to me that there were musicians I'd like to hear do remixes. In the process of suggesting to some of these musicians that they do such a thing, collecting them for release as an album was the natural next step.
