From 1985, the beginning of our collaboration in Amsterdam, we have been involved in performances, concerts and theatre productions. Since 1990, however, we have focused in particular on the development of autonomous “music machines”. All our machines are dynamic: sound and movement are in constant development. The Krachtgever is our best-known piece for its Golden Nica, received in 1998 at the Prix Ars Electronica, Linz. Other projects are Cantan un Huevo, commissioned by the Ives Ensemble, Amsterdam, in 2000 and awarded at the 29th Competition of Bourges, 2002, or Aguas Vivas, which obtained a mention at VIDA 6.0, Madrid, 2003 and was shown at “White Noise”, ACMI, Melbourne, 2005 and recently in “El medio es la comunicación”, El Tanque, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 2007.
