Thought I’d give another shout-out for the Disquiet Junto, a weekly audio project run by Marc Weidenbaum
“The Disquiet Junto is a group I founded on Soundcloud.com. The purpose of the group is to use constraints to stoke creativity. Each Thursday evening I post a clearly defined compositional assignment, and members of the Junto are to complete the assignment by 11:59pm the following Monday.”
I’ve contributed a few times. My latest is here: https://soundcloud.com/neurogami/cradlegrave-disquiet-junto-192
What I like about the Junto is it’s an excuse to make music I might not otherwise have attempted. This recent one is not that far off from what I tend to do anyway, but one nice side-effect is that in putting together a piece I’ve generated a number of possibly useful fragments (riffs, samples) I think will be fodder for other music.
On other cases I’ve ended up making music that to a fair degree isn’t “my type” of music, but doing it was informative nonetheless.
I encourage Renoisers to check it out and take a shot at contributing.
