Bang Smash Beep Krrrrrrrrrr bop szzzshshshshshshshhhshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh We get together every Tuesday night in Amsterdam and make {sound}.play. Nothing flash: a hackintosh, average piano, cheap musical toys, toypiano, triangles, old telephones, and anything else we can get our hands on. We each have a main role: Felipe Ignacio is live coding, and using his laptop as an electronic instrument and Anne Veinberg is playing the acoustical instruments.

Felipe and Anne have been collaborating for several years, from more conventional contemporary music works, to their more recent improvisatory duo Off<>zz and are unique in their use of piano and live-coding in music making. Between them, they have performed at many key festivals including Live Code, Sonorities, November Music, Grachten, Trance, Atlas, Uitmarkt,  and Tromp Percussion Festival.
