This work is composed of innumerable sounds of acoustic and electric guitars, synthesizers, many percussion instruments, cavaquinhos, woodwinds, pianos and accordions ever. As for the composition and subsequent recording of the album, it said Julieta on her official blog: "Both the composition and the arrangements began to assemble at home, composing on the piano, and then up the music room I have, where I started recording with the idea of trying things, many of those things ended up being on disk , which I love, because it was something very homely, not thinking about the pressure of study, but in the quiet of my house. Not that I have a big studio, I have to clarify basic only pro tools, and many instruments this time came many cavaquinhos, percussion, synthesizers, accordion with many effects, drum machines, in short, the development of ideas was something I did in solitude, and sometimes forgetting that it was preparing a disc. I came to write about 40 songs, among which I did in my house, and later in Buenos Aires, where I got together to compose Ale Sergi (Miranda!), Adrian Dargelos (Babasónicos ).... I wanted to write with other people, after be at home one time, it was refreshing to see what could come to sit with friends, both Ale and Adrian are very friendly and have been wanting to do things together, and now it happened."
