Pin Park are a Polish duo consisting of Maciek Baczyk and Maciek Polak. Through their improvised music they aim to achieve optimal sound and structure, using only the unusual architecture and unrepeatable timbres of EMS synthesizers (2 X Synthi AKS). The EMS synthesizers, built in 1971, were one of the first commercially available synthesizers used and praised by musicians ever since, from Pink Floyd, Brian Eno and Jean Michel Jarre to Aphex Twin and Alessandro Cortini. Taking inspiration from IDM, Krautrock and Ambient music, Pin Park's approach is best described as minimalist and experimental. All compositions are created without the use of computers. Pin Park’s debut album Krautpark came out in 2017 via Polish label Instant Classic. In their live shows Aga Jarząb (kinoMANUAL) creates visuals for their concerts, becoming the third member of Pin Park.
open.circuit is an audiovisual performance created by Assunta Alegiani and Pedro Ferreira that combines improvised sounds, collage and text. In their work they use personal subject matter to build up soundscapes that are in dialogue with moving images.
