Since the beginning they played homemade electronic instruments such as Reactabox (a midi controller inspired by the famous Reactable™: it consists of a cube of light that works with an infrared webcam which works by reading images on little cubes and discs controllers that are placed and moved on the reactabox screen) and Drummabox (an acoustic drum machine based on Arduino).
In 2012 they released the first album “La Colpa della Leonessa Soundtrack”, a Soundtrack for the theatre play “La colpa della Leonessa”, directed by Anna Volpi and presented at “Festival de Teatro Social” in Valencia. Even the live-equipment is renewed: they built a second ReactaBOX more performing.
In March 2014 they realized the second album “Musique pour les Poissons” released by the New York label “System Recordings”. The album was released in conjunction and paired with the release of the book: “Racconti per Pesci del Mare d’Aria”. The videomaker Giovanni Tutti directed two videoclips of the single tracks of the album: “Someone’s Dub” (a stop-motion video) and the cover “Oye Como Va”.
