In 2003, as part of the a choreographic creation by Danièle Desnoyers entitled Duos pour corps et instruments, Nancy Tobin designed a sound device for the dancers based on feedback.

The CD project DUO DES AIGUS is the result of research that Tobin would qualify as «privileged », as for the first time, she and the dancers had the opportunity to concentrate solely on the sound and the possibilities of the feedback generating instrument. Over more than twelve hours, AnneBruce Falconer and Sophie Corriveau improvised with their guitar amp, their effect pedals and with a small microphone attached directly to the body.
