About this composition:

The piece was created in order to be played in real time, where the performer strictly follows a score which modifies instructions controlling; diverse MIDI parameters, random boundaries, Markov chains, and synthesis modifications through sysex.
In certain circumstances of the piece the performer have a total control over the action to be player, for example: stop o play all activities in MIDI channel N#, or to give a specified delay value of N# between a loop of notes; and to other hand only the performed assigned random boundaries for velocity, pan, etc.
All parameters and probabilities are independent of each and more related parameters (scaled, transpositions, clocks for internal automatic action) can be also controlled interactively in real time.

The piece is performed in real time with the software "Cascadas" written by the author using HMSL (Hierarchical Music Specification Language by Larry Polansky, Phil Burk and David Rosenboom from the Mills College).
Computer Macintosh SE. The MIDI source: Roland MT 32, Casio CZ 101 and Yamaha TX 81Z.
