In recent years an interactive software named AREM the goal of which is to produce reinterpretation in real time of sequences input through a MIDI interface was developed. This software is based on a specific composition methodology by Francisco Kröpfl implemented by Miguel Calzón. AREM2, a non interactive program, takes the same starting point and it is oriented towards the organization of musical structures including pitch, rhythm, syntactic units and texture. Both programs are complementary and may be used simultaneously.
