During the first phase the nuclear material was worked up and its evolution was planned in a way that was still quite abstract. The material and its "DNA" are structured before the actual design of the work. This phase does not present, yet, the image of the work's form. In this work phase I give more importance to the planning of the materials, to the construction of the sonorous material which, although it already reveals its own identity and partially defines qualitative aspects of the form, is not yet presented as a musical discourse. In other words, the musical sense or musical context of the material is not yet represented in this phase. As Ramon Barce puts it "... The vision of the work is outside of its own creative moment", which corresponds to the initial level, the first contact with the idea and to its "rationalization" in a still rather abstract frame. This means that there are two moments in the achievement of the work: a first moment where the planning is still rather vague, very frail, without clear contours, and a second moment, where the planning gains structure, when the elaboration of the material which will constitute the work is started, i.e. the codes upon which the work will be built, and which represent the image that comes before the image of the work's form. The material developed, essentially, through the expansion of its concrete musical characteristics, contributing, from the beginning, to the expressive quality or identity, which will be present in the final achievement of the work. In this case, the unity principle does not search a super control; on the contrary, it tries to create nuclei, formants, which will manifest themselves differently as they interact with each other.
