condition: (as determined by the sixth junto project) select one distinct element from each of the three following recordings (1,2,3) and construct something new from them. (do not add any other sounds, though certainly use any sorts of processing that you might choose.) keep your finished piece to between two and five minutes. all three tracks are archival songs originally released on antique edison cylinders in the late 1800s and very early 1900s.

all audio selected from these antique cylinder recordings:

improvisation sourced from live input of a vinyl pressing of rachmaninoff’s sontana in g minor, op. 19. into mlr using an ardinome

(the turntable used was a recently acquired portable. after some work cleaning up the idler wheel and soldering to fix a volume issue today, the califone is now in great working order)
