Best Answer

This is a key minimalist technique that involves the gradual change of a melodic or rhythmic idea, by the addition or subtraction of a note to/from a repeating pattern or ostinato. Alternatively, a note might be replaced by a rest, or a rest by a note. It is often employed by key minimalist composers such as Phillip Glass.
