Disquiet Junto 0357 Clock Work

The Assignment: Base a piece of music on your previous 12 hours

As I read the Junto email, I’d just seen my kids onto the school bus after making them breakfast.

The previous 12 hours had been dominated by around eight and half hours of sleep.

Other activities included coffee, muesli, lovemaking and having a bath.

I began writing lyrics to describe a dream but didn’t record them.

When I started writing the song for sleep, I picked the acoustic guitar.

At first I worried about noise, then realised background noise was important.

So I recorded all the guitar in the backyard to get sounds from throughout the 12 hours.
