Capturas del Único Camino, Damián Anache's first solo album, reveals a recording of a generative piece performed using an algorithm created by himself. The designed software (developed on Pure Data language) manipulates different kinds on sonic materials consisting of: acoustic instruments (played by the composer); sounds generated by his mouth and vocal tract (also by the same composer); sounds created by synthesis techniques; and other recordings of sounds generated by water. This interpretation algorithm involves a list of directions and actions subjected by random choices according to a model proposed for the piece's first section score (printed score included in physical editions). Furthermore, be noted that although the piece is presented as a CD Audio, the same piece is developed in other formats such as audiovisual installation.[4]
