The Cube is delighted to host kinoMANUAL / Pin Park LIVE on the first date of their UK tour.
Experimenting with moving image and sound, visual duo kinoMANUAL creates films and objects that correspond with a rich tradition of moving image, kinetic art and experimental cinema. They have teamed up with sound duo Pin Park, who creates electronic music using only the unusual architecture and unrepeatable timbres of EMS synthesizers. Expect a wondrous exploration of colour, form, composition and texture, spanning from the tiniest details in nature through cosmic mindscapes. With Pin Park's minimalist and experimental compositions, it will be a feast for all senses.

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.
