The piece was created using self-made software that the author has been developing since 2007 and published on the IMPROVISA website. The ideal way to play this piece (and create new ones) is through this application.

IMPROVISA allows you to create audiovisual compositions by touching your keyboard. Just select a sound and an animation folder (you can import your own folders to the application). Each folder has 26 files corresponding to the 26 keys on your keyboard. Each key produces a sound and an animation, and you can combine multiple keys to create your own compositions, control the volume, create pan effects, etc… while capturing your own compositions.
