Step 1: Define a scale of 8 notes (or sounds).
Step 2: Create a melody with 4 notes from the scale resulting from Step 1.
Step 3: Replace note 2 in the melodic sequence from Step 2 with an unused note (selected deterministically or randomly). Then do this for note 4, then for note 3, and then for note 1.
Step 4: Reintroduce the first melody as counterpoint to the result of Step 3. This establishes a pair of notes at each point in time.

My scale is a 8 note diatonic that goes:
C-D-E-F#-G#-A#-B-C 8va

My 4 note melody is C-E-C8-G#
I did the permutations suggested on step 3, I just added some high notes to give it some spark, then I went on with step 4 and then started to develop freely.

3 different pianos (one muted and played with mallets)
Orchestral samples and treatments.
