Starting in 1999, the duo sought to redefine their identities so as to become more aligned the direction of their music. They consulted with Grammy winning video directors Alex & Martin for designs, and Tony Gardner of Alterian Inc. contributed his special effects expertise to make the project a reality.It wasn’t long before the robots were born and history was made.
