This haiku shared by Naviar Records prompted me to revisit a recording I'd made recently.

The wind is often an unseen force and is unmentioned in the poem, yet seems central when considering a soundtrack responding to the scene.

Disquiet Junto 0402 Music for Tasks

The Disquiet Junto this week asks for music to accompany a task.

I'd recently revisited the recording of my washing line for Junto 356 and had just finished hanging a load, so I set about recording the drums to accompany that chore.

This aligns with Dom Vella's observation that "everything sounds better with drums."

I decided to include the sound of the washing line for context and, the way it builds, reminds me of how electronic music employs white noise.
