Disquiet Junto Project 0039: Netlabel Derivations.

“Each Thursday evening at the Disquiet Junto group on a new compositional challenge is set before the group’s members, who then have just over four days to upload a track in response to the assignment…

…The assignment was made early in the afternoon, California time, on Thursday, September 27, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, October 1, as the deadline…

…The netlabel phenomenon is a tremendous force in contemporary music, with hundreds of these small organizations around the world actively distributing for free the music of willing musicians. In many ways, the concept of the netlabel is at the forefront of the Creative Commons — except for one lingering issue: Many netlabels set their tracks to a license that doesn’t allow for derivative works. On a label-by-label basis, that’s likely an informed decision. But from a broader perspective, it arguably stunts the promotion of shared culture.

In order to encourage the employment of licenses that allow for derivative works, such as remixes, the Disquiet Junto will focus its collective attention this week to a netlabel that allows for derivative works. We’ll take three tracks from three different releases from the Nowaki label, based in Toulouse, France, and combine them into remixed celebrations of the label’s vibrancy.

So, the assignment this week is simple. Please download the following three tracks from the netlabel Nowaki and combine them into a new track. You can process the sourced audio in any way you choose, but you can’t add anything to it…

…This Disquiet Junto project was done as a celebration of the efforts of the Nowaki netlabel, and to support its employment of licenses that allow for derivative works. This track is comprised of three pieces of music: “Irise” by Barascud (nk104), “Sumatra” by André D / Christophe Meulien (nk106), and “She Likes to Look at the Sky” by Kluge (nk089). More on the Nowaki label, and the original versions of these tracks.”
