A 90 pieces cycle for solo piano called Instantaneous Music, created specifically for the program directed by Martí GironellEl pont de les formigues” of Catalunya Ràdio, during the seasons 2001-2004.

The particularity of this cycle of pieces for solo piano is that I proposed to compose them immediately, with the firsts musical ideas that inspire me the different themes the show producers proposed me, that changed each week. That's why all have a specific date of creation, as sometimes I composed many of them the same day.  

In the middle part of each piece there is space for improvisation.

Topic proposed for this piece: In 1944 Humphrey Bogart fell in love with the actress Lauren Bacall during the filming of "To have or have not". In this movie the actress said "if you need me, you just have to give me a little whistle". When they got married he gave her a pendant with a gold whistle. What is the most special gift of your life?

Emission of the piece: July 12, 2003
