May 17 marks the release date of “Krautpark” – the debut album from Pin Park. Pin Park are a duo consisting of Maciek B±czyk (Kristen, Robotobibok) and Maciek Polak. Together they explore the nether regions of improvised electronic music mixing influences ranging from Cluster to Boards of Canada.
“We’ve known each other for years now. We met when B±czyk’s synth broke down just before he was supposed to enter the studio with Robotobibok and he was looking for a replacement. I agreed to lend him mine,” recalls Polak. “But it was only two years ago when we started improvising together,” adds B±czyk. “Both of us own EMS synths and these are not that common. We didn’t set ourselves any goals, the band started by assuming two EMS’s are better than one. We plugged them in and the result will soon land in your hands in the form of ‘Krautpark’ album,” recalls Polak.
