Disquiet Junto Project 0328: Sonic Pentimento
That word is “pentimento,” which is defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a reappearance in a painting of an original drawn or painted element which was eventually painted over by the artist.” Familiarize yourself with the term.
Think about how the term “pentimento” can be borrowed from painting and applied to sound.

Recently I could get my hands on a collection of music boxes my mother had and that I adored when I was a little child. I have that stuff in my place now, along with a big clock with a gorgeous carillon with the “Big Ben” melody.

For this junto I sampled those objects from the past and composed a melody reminiscent of the music-box melancholic type of melody, performed on a nice freebie for Kontakt called “W Music Bow”

I mixed all that with some oneiric soundscapes and played around the faders to bring the music from the past back and forth.
