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 pieceOscar Wilde said: "The drama of old age does not consist in being old, but in being young." At what age do you think old age begins?

Emission of the piece: December 14, 2002
