No One To Turn To (disquiet0274)

…And this house is such a shit hole. I don’t have the energy for it, man. The emotional energy. I just don’t want to be here. I don’t give a fuck…

Broken: “(of a person) having given up all hope; despairing.”

Sound: “sound produced by continuous and regular vibrations, as opposed to noise”

The Assignment: Record a piece of music in the genre called “broken sound.”

I Couldn’t Hear It Beep (disquiet0273)

Here is my 109th contribution to the Disquiet Junto:

The Assignment: Make music for a (new! improved!) slow-waking alarm clock.

I still use the same battery-powered Timex Indiglo alarm clock that my then-co-workers back in 1993 gave me when I went from the evening shift to the day shift at the mutual fund company. I haven’t destroyed it yet, even when routine bites hard.

In the past I have wondered about crafting an alarm clock sound. Maybe people do that on their smartphones, but I don’t sleep with my phone.

In typical Rushton fashion, I assembled this out of various bits and remnants: a beat made in Figure, some lower electronic sounds made in Samplr, recordings I made of birds in the morning, the Severe Thunderstorm Warning Sirens…. and a short sample of a processed voicemail that will surely do it’s job when I Couldn’t Hear It Beep.

A Short Walk Through The Day (disquiet0268)

In 3 minutes I walk through a day: night, morning, the day, a rain storm late in the day, and ending with night. I’m walking on a gravel trail, pitched slightly down. The other sounds you hear were recorded from my screened porch. The music inserted is “A Short Walk Inside” from my 2013 album Crackle And Drift.
