Živa is a quark aimed to simplify the live coding experience in SuperCollider, both to quickly set up the environment and to code in a sparse and clear syntax.

This paper describes the reasons that led the author to develop it and his procedures in doing so. The paper introduces the problems encountered when using other languages, and the solutions found in SuperCollider to solve them. This is not a research paper, but a report of the motivation, proceedings and achieved results of the developer's experience in creating this subset of tools for SuperCollider.
