Bosch & Simons

Bosch & Simons is a duo consisting of artists Peter Bosch and Simone Simons.

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.

“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.”

Bosch & Simons will be performing at No Patent Pending #29 and participating in the sound art exhibition at November Music.
