Disquiet Junto Project 195: Chinasystem Soundsystem
Make music for a Caochangdi Village National Day party.
Caochangdi is a Chinese village that is home to many artists, including Matt Hope and Naihan Li. In the afternoon and early evening of Thursday, October 1, which is National Day in China, there will be a party in Caochangdi utilizing the unique and sizable Laoban Soundsystem. Laoban is fully Creative Commons hardware, and was developed by Matt Hope. The Laoban Soundsystem crew has asked the Junto to create music for the party, which will run from 2pm to 7pm, that means our goal is 5 hours of music.
Please consider setting your track for downloadable, as streaming at the party may not function smoothly, because the Internet in China is heavily filtered, which means downloading of the track needs to happen before the event to insure proper playback.
Step 1: You are creating music for a long party and a big sound system. Keep this in mind. If possible, make a track that lasts about 10 to 15 minutes long.
Step 2: Create a track that moves through three stages:
The first stage should be brief and invoke sounds related to agriculture.
The second stage, the longest of the three stages, should invoke sounds related to artistic production and communal living. Slowly transition from the first stage to the second stage.
The third stage should begin abruptly and invoke rapid industrialization.
Step 3: Upload your completed track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.
Step 4: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Deadline: This assignment was made in the early evening, New York City time, on Thursday, September 24, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, September 28, 2015.
Length: The length of your finished work should be, if possible, between 10 and 15 minutes. However, if you want to make it shorter, that is certainly fine. We’ll just play it on repeat.
