Constructed using SuperCollider, One Hundred and Twenty-seven Haiku is a development of pSY and its products The Copenhagen Interpretation (1998-1999) and Ambience (2002) and the more recent Many Worlds (2008). The former used custom made software made with Visual Basic to control Yamaha SY synthesisers. The latter used SuperCollider to control similar TG77 synths. One Hundred and Twenty-Seven Haiku uses SuperCollider to do everything: design and generate the sounds as well as decide when to play them and what they should play.

for a new haiku
One plan is to display the haikus while the piece is being performed, ad libitum. It's possible that I'll try to find a way for the haikus to actually influence the performance of the piece.
