kinoMANUAL / Pin Park LIVE
Monday, July 1. 2019 – 21:00 Uhr @ Q21 – MuseumsQuartier / Raum D
This is a project comprised of two duos that actually constitute a trio: kinoMANUAL (Aga Jarząb & Maciek Bączyk) and Pin Park (Maciek Polak & Maciek Bączyk).
Based in Wroclaw, kinoMANUAL explore mainly analogue stop-motion techniques, such as hand-drawn, cut-out and non camera animation. Pin Park creates electronic music using only the unusual architecture and unrepeatable timbres of EMS synthesizers /2 x Synthi AKS/. Built in 1971, these were one of the first commercially available synthesizers used and praised by musicians ever since, from Brian Eno to Alessandro Cortini, and many others.
Their live session is a wondrous exploration of colour, form, composition, and texture, spanning from the tiniest details in nature through cosmic mindscapes. In turn, Pin Park’s minimalist and experimental compositions help submerge the viewer in this feast for the senses, where time seems to take a respite.
kinoMANUAL is a small, independent audio-visual production house focused on experimenting with the moving image and sound. We mainly explore analogue animation techniques such as hand-drawn, cut-out or direct cinema. We enjoy manual contact with film and production process itself. kinoMANUAL creates films and objects that correspond with a rich tradition of moving images, kinetic art and experimental cinema.

Pin Park are 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). Built in 1971, these 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. During the concerts Pin Park transform into a trio. The third person in a band is Aga Jarząb – from kinoMANUAL, who works with Pin Park to create visuals for their live shows.
