    My process: I used this sample as a loop in four simultaneous layers. The first layer simply repeats the loop without change. The second loop repeats the loop, but stretches it out 0.5% longer for each repetition after the first. The third layer does the same, but stretches by %1 increments, the fourth layer by 1.5%. So all four layers start together but after the first cycle they begin to diverge, similarly to Steve Reich's phase pieces but at a very different (much less gradual) pace. I made the piece in Audacity over the course of an hour or so.
