They have experimented with electronic sound and moving visual art forms for over three decades, producing a wide range of electronic/digital media art, recordings and sound/video/sculptural installations. These works often incorporate diverse technical elements: video projection within and upon objects, movement triggered sound and image, interactive mechanical constructions, sound spatialization and transduction, and digital animation.
