Oplocromodalization, draft two




Oplocromodalization


1. The composer selects a number of sounds, patterns or instruments to be used in a composition and organizes them by name, keeping in mind the contents or properties of each element, and how they might be used.

2. The composer selects or is provided with audio stimulus (though not audio from the present project) to listen to throughout the duration of the composing process.

3. The composer manipulates the chosen sound elements, completing the work without benefit of hearing the project they are creating until the piece is entirely finished.

sparkligbeatnic noticed that aspects of the process I used to create the song Hegel, Tulpa seemed novel. I wrote this specification for the process based on my experiment and our subsequent discussions:

'Hegel, Tulpa'; 'Oplocromodalization, draft one'; and 'Oplocromodalization, draft two'
