sparkligbeatnic has given a name to the process used to create 'Hegel, Tulpa':
"I think with time I could come up with a good name for this kind of composition process. Something like open-loop cross-modal composition."
1. The artist selects a number of samples to be used in a composition and organizes them by filename, keeping in mind the contents of each sample, and how they might be used.
2. The artist selects music or other audio (not audio from the present project) to listen to while composing. This stimulus does not have to be related, even thematically, to the aims of the project.
3. The artist manipulates the samples visually, with a sequencer and/or a sound editing program, completing the work without benefit of hearing the project they are creating until the piece is entirely finished.
