Werken 1989-1999

Bosch & Simons (2009)

A retrospective of our work from 1990 until 2008 was held in Espace Louis Pommier, La Tour du Pin (Isère), France From September 19 until November 29, 2009.


Último Intento Minero is just the start of a new series in which we transform the properties and history of objects that are characteristic of a city or country into sound and image.


Sounding Industrial vibrators, placed in animal cages, become a relic of what once was a living creature, creating an audio-visual metaphor of a biomechanical machine.


A work, powered by the wind that blows six metal plates which hit long metal springs in an extremely unpredictable way.

ACUÁTICA (2019-20)

Acuática is a new project in which we capture and mix the sound of air bubbles in carboys filled with water, premiered in CentroCentro, Madrid, October 2019.

Último Esfuerzo Rural III (2017)

Once brought into resonance antiquated rural objects recover their forgotten value by producing mysterious, hypnotic sounds.

Toronto 2015

The first Vibration and Resonance workshop with vibration sources that are controlled by compressed air, one of the Soundhackers Intensive workshops within the program of the Sound Travels Festival, Toronto, August 2015.

Valencia 2014

Workshop Vibration and Resonance, Bosch & Simons, Nits d´Aielo i Art, Teatro Principal, Valencia, March 2014.

Liverpool 2012

This was an open one-day family workshop at FACT Liverpool, December 2012, in which anybody was able to build, rebuild and control vibrating constructions and its sounds.

Valencia 2005

Workshop Music Machines, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spain, 2005. In about 8 sessions art students were encouraged to build and show their own Music Machine.

Último Esfuerzo Industrial (2012-2016)

Último Esfuerzo Industrial consists of four electric motors, four frequency controllers, four contact microphones and four bass guitar amps. The piece evokes aesthetics and dreams of the futurist movement of an age ago.

MIRLITONES (2012-2016)

Mirlitones was commissioned by DordtYart, Dordrecht in 2012. A new, improved version was shown at Kidogo, Fremantle during the ICMC / Totally Huge New Music Festival, Perth, 2013.

Wilberforces (2012-2013)

Wilberforces is a new work within our long series of vibratory projects. The title refers directly to a phenomenon from science, the Wilberforce Pendulum. This pendulum is nothing more than a hung metal spring with below it a central weight plus eccentric weights for calibration.

Aguas Vivas (1996/2001-2007)

Oil is sent into vibration and the surface starts to undulate, changing constantly. Light reflected onto the surface of the oil is fragmented. The results are captured with a video camera and projected on a wall, energetic and very hypnotic.

Último Esfuerzo Rural I (2004-2008)

Both parts of Último Esfuerzo Rural produce sounds, big or little, always coarse, sensitive and individual. Part I consists of pitchforks which scratch on glass of windows to be enjoyed inside and outside of the space.

Último Esfuerzo Rural ll (2004-2008)

Último Esfuerzo Rural (“Last Rural Effort”) is composed of two rather different installations. Both produce sounds, big or little, always coarse, sensitive and individual. Part II onsists of giant “zambombas” (lions roars), made of ancient wine barrels, played by pneumatic cylinders.

Springtime in a Small Town (2006)

What makes the work different from our other vibratory projects is its environment. The boxes and metal springs abandoned the closed space and inhabit a romantic wood in Belgium. This way the project acquires an almost meditative charge.

BANG SPRING TIME (2009-2016)

What you see is what you hear: Very long springs between two resonant bodies. Metal bars strike the springs and a wave is set in motion. The sound is born at the same time as the wave, and when the wave dies out the sound also fades away. Or the other way around?

Was der Wind zum Klingen bringt (1989-1990 / 2003)

An apparently unpredictable sequence of timbres, harmonies and dynamics are combined to create the illusion of a living object.

The Electric Swaying Orchestra (1991-1992)

Parametrically-driven pendulums is a well-known subject within the cadre of order and chaos theories. Unpredictable, labile equilibriums lead to situations that are impossible to control entirely.

Vooruitgang (1994) and Trajectversterker (1993)

The vibrations generated in the Trajectversterker and Vooruitgang are able to transport objects over a distance on a track constructed of wooden sound chambers.

Krachtgever (1994-1998)

The Krachtgever , a 12 meter long wall of wooden crates and metal springs is probably our best-known piece for its Golden Nica, received in 1998 at the Prix Ars Electronica, Linz.

A Castle for Kobe (1996-1999)

A Castle for Kobe was simply a necessity. A small monument in the spirit of Japan. Not something heavy and monumental, meant for eternity, but something fleeting, portable, lightweight.

Chutes Libres de Printemps (2010/2011)

Chutes Libres de Printemps is a project by Le 8 renversé and Bosch & Simons, a performance by two dancers, double bass and our work Bang Spring Time.

Cantan un Huevo (2000-2001)

Hundreds of metal springs, originally tied together to serve as a mattress, form an extremely complex surface when put into movement. Oscillating motors cause glass bottles, placed on these spring mattresses, to rattle against on another in many ways.
