Two Cycles is a system for performances in the urban environment composed in principle by two bicycles in motion. Every bicycle has a small laptop computer; the laptops are interconnected via a mobile ad-hoc wireless network. Thanks to the network the laptops can share data. The data shared by the computers is translated in real time into sound. Two Cycles has been performed three times: in Santa Barbara California in 2008, in Geneva Switzerland in 2008 and in Madrid Spain in 2010.
