On a formal level, this work is focused on a detailed, very meticulous development of movement, space and density.

Within the sound evolution of the piece, in uninterrupted expansion, all sorts of local accidents are liberated, micro- and macro-forms, colours and contrasts rich and multiple, which move towards an acoustic world (electroacoustic) which has never been heard before, or which is, at the least, uncommon.

In this piece, the violence, dynamism, speed, concentration and sudden liberation of energies become veritable formal constants. These discursive categories emerge as more than anecdotal attributes. They are genuine articulatory principles around which the real aesthetic project of the work proceeds and is constructed.
