[aired] Spin Dizzy Fall Goes The Sky

My track There Goes The Sky (freemusicarchive | bandcamp | soundcloud) goes on a Creative Commons adventure with a group of instagrammers and pro photographers in New South Wales, Australia, testing the Panasonic Lumix GX8. Beautiful people, dream-state locations, fog-shrouded wild horses and frenzied pelicans make this vid quadruple-xclnt.

Spin Dizzy Fall is 24yr old Sydney blogger, Emma Lucey. “Step into my world,” she entreats in her description. “Stay young, stay free.”

[words] deposition reflections

copter study 06282015c

Truth over time becomes elusive – and relative – so lawyers ply their trade in the fuzziness of memory. Justice relies on absolute truth, and pursuit of it is mere human invention – absurd and Sisyphean as any other attempt to stanch the entropy of the universe.

Yesterday, after four hours of being probed, prodded, picked apart and piecemealed by opposing counsels, I walked out of my attorney’s office thinking of Kurt Vonnegut’s observation that “only humankind is running out of time.”

[words] since i heard the sun

04 july 2015

It’s been a long time since
I heard the sun
Call my name
It’s been a long time
since
I was supposed to
Find my way
Since
I felt needed
Slept through the night
Saw any form of
promised land

moon shot 092715a

Dreams take me high
And leave me lovely
(but) also falling
[terrified]
judged outside
turned inside
At the back door
On a front line

sky runs red
darkness visible
Blood runs red
empty streets

sunset brooklyn 092215b

It’s been a long time
since
I heard the sun
call my name
It’s been a long time
since
I could find
my way

you can still be a refugee
in a place you cannot escape
dissolve into a clandestino
with nowhere to go

backyard sunset 06252015a

Don’t fall silent now
You are not forgotten ones
Chasing rays
Crying for the sun
To fight the war inside


[track] The Young Unicorns [disquiet0196-wholelottawhole]

PROCESS
In which I fire up my old-friend Casio CZ-1000, program a quasi new wave dance groove with Acid loops and sight read the notes in the photo. The CZ was set to a square wave with a slight detune and vibrato. Luckily, it goes 6-note polyphonic so it handled the 3-note chords fine. The 11-measure sequence in the photo is repeated as 8 measure sequences break it up into a couple verses, choruses and a bridge. The 11 vs 8 tension resulted in no two verses or choruses having the same melody line, which served to amplify the fun. Very meditative, too, to allow whole notes to fill spaces.

I had designs on recording the bass on the Casio, too, using the image’s staff as a bass clef. This created more mess than movement, though, so I left the photo to represent a treble clef staff only and built the piece around a right hand melody.

122 BPM
Key: C

PROJECT
Sight-read the whiteboard notation from a children’s music class.

Step 1: Read the music notation in the following image (note that the photograph was taken at a music class for elementary and preschool students).

The image is here:
goo.gl/2C1mqT

Step 2: Record a piece of music based on that notation.

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, California time, on Thursday, October 1, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, October 5, 2015.

Length: The length of your finished work should be roughly one minute, though longer is certainly fine.
