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”. Within Spain we have shown our work, among others, at Metrònom, Barcelona (2001, 2004 and 2005), the Museu d’Art Modern de Tarragona (2003), at the Centro del Carme, La Nau and the Teatro Principal in Valencia (Ensems, 2000, 2004 and 2014) and at the Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid (Nits d Aielo i Art, 1999 and 2004). We have given workshops at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (2002 and 2005), at the cultural centre Antiguo Instituto de Gijon (2004 and 2005) and at LIEM, Museo Reina Sofía (2005) and more recently at FACT, Liverpool, 2012 and Nits d Aielo i Art, Valencia, 2014.

The Krachtgever is our best-known piece for its Golden Nica, received in 1998 at the Prix Ars Electronica, Linz, in the category of Digital Musics. Another well-known project is Aguas Vivas, which obtained a mention at VIDA 6.0, Madrid, 2003 and was shown at various locations worldwide. In 2009 a retrospective exhibition of our work was held at La Tour-du-Pin, France, curated by GRAME, Lyon. More recent works are Mirlitones and Wilberforces.

Peter Bosch (1958) studied psychology at the Universities of Leiden and Amsterdam (1976-‘83) and thereafter studied sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague (1986-‘87). Simone Simons (1961) studied at the audiovisual department of the Gerrit Rietveld Art Academy in Amsterdam (1980-‘85). Since 1997 they work and live in Valencia, Spain.

Matteo Marangoni


Focusing on the potential of listening to establish new connections between people, places and objects, Matteo Marangoni’s performances and installations employ field recordings, sound archives, computer programming and DIY electronics. Finding unconventional uses for audio technologies and other media, his work probes the relationship between sound, space and the body, approaching the body of the listener through physical experiences that collapse and reshape the space between subject and object. He studied at the ArtScience Interfaculty in The Hague under the guidance of Edwin van der Heide, where he initiated a research trajectory on non-virtual techniques for sound spatialization based on mobile robotic loudspeakers. His work has been presented at venues such as STEIM (Amsterdam), November Music (Den Bosch), Ethonologisches Museum (Berlin), NAISA (Toronto), European Media Art Festival (Osnabruck), Triennale di Milano (Milan), Q-02 (Brussels). His installation “Quiet Before the Storm” received an honorary mention at the Sonic Arts Award 2014. He is a founding member of the artist-run platform “iii” and curates the nomadic performance program “No Patent Pending”.
