Disquiet Junto Project 0104: 2013 in 60 Seconds
This week’s project is a sound journal, an audio history of the past year. You will select a different audio element to represent each of the past 12 months of 2013. You will then select one 5-second segment from each of these audio elements. Then you will stitch these dozen 5-second segments together in chronological order to form 1 single 1-minute track. There should be no overlap or gap between segments; they should simply proceed from one to the next.
These audio elements will most likely be of music that you have yourself composed and recorded, but they might also consist of phone messages, field recordings, or other source material. These items should be somehow personal in nature, suitable to the autobiographical intention of the project; they should preferably of your own making, and not drawn from third-party sources.
2013 was an extremly busy year for me so I often had several choices of audio sources to represent each month. For 2 months I have used audio that was remixed from my recordings by other artists rather than my own.
Jan - Schemawound - BEASTS(Homunculus-Basilisk)
This piece was coded in Supercollider in late Dec 2012 but Dystimbria held off publishing it until early 2013. Album Info
Contains samples from:
“Llais-saL” by Alan Morse Davies
“A Strange Seed” by C. Reider
“Swamp Monsters, Secret Prisons” by Cinchel
“A Brief Compendium of Silence” by Phillip Wilkerson
Feb - Schemawound - Hymncycle (First Phase)
In February I had a rather large release of a remix album featuring several other Disquiet Junto members. It was entitled “Body Movements”. The piece I have used to represent this is actually an outtake of mine that did not make it to the “They Want To Make Your Body Move. I Want To Hold You Perfectly Still.” album and was instead included as part of the remix album. Album Info
Mar - Schemawound - A Map To Everything
This piece was created as part of the Disquiet Junto and was later released on my album “@@ERROR”. Album Info
Apr - C. Reider - Hello, I Am Asleep
While I did not release anything of my own in April I was surprised to see that C. Reider did created a piece of music based off of one of my own. This was origanally planned to be part of the Body Movements remix album but did not get completed in time. This track is taken from the album “The Conjuncts”. Album Info
May - Schemawound - A Ghost In My own House
This album was my first release on Xylem and was again written completely in Supercollider. I believe that is sonicly picks up where “They Want To Make Your Body Move. I Want To Hold Your Perfectly Still.” leaves off. Album Info
Jun - Schemawound - A Worm Digs Silently
This is one of the three tracks included on my Haiku release for Subterranean Tide. Album Info
Jul - Schemawound - When The First Seed Takes Hold
This is from my second full length release for Xylem records. In this release I decided to branch out from the last few strict Supercollider releases and began utilizing field recordings, Renoise, Reaper and Reaktor. I believe this is the most varied of my recent releases and I would recommend it as a good starting point for my music. Album Info
Aug - Schemawound - The Bottom Of The Well
This is the second track included to come from “@@ERROR”. This track was written for a release I planned for Deriv.cc that did not end up happening. Album Info
Contains samples of the following tracks:
“Glimpse” by ioflow
“I Hate Therefore I Am” by Clayton Alpha
“Halo of the Moon” by 6&8
Sep - Schemawound - Exit Music (For A Solar System)
This was another piece created for the Disquiet Junto. This one was created in order to celebrate Voyager’s exit from the solar system.
Oct - Schemawound - Not Asleep, Not Dreaming
This piece was taken from my album “Occupy Dreamland”. This was an attempt to step outside my usual methods and work in real time utilizing a looper and a few simple items. Album Info
Nov - Schemawound - WYSINWYG
A generative piece created for the Disquiet Junto. Formed from the text of a book.
Dec - The Atlas Room - Arid Haze
