Catalogue of works

Selection

Up to August 2007: 127 works for different ensembles. Since 1991, Josep-Maria Balanyà has mainly focused on the sound possibilities of piano. Since 1994 several new works have emerged as a result of this research with the addition of other non-conventional instruments-objects. These new works can be brought together under the label of "Acoustic experimental art". All these works relate to instantaneous composition.
