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: The word tourism, from "tourist" comes from the first people who traveled in a group for pleasure; They were British citizens who visited the Chateaux de la Loire in France, where the capital isTours. Will you be the tourist or will you stay at home this summer?

Emission of the piece: July 19, 2003
