about

Erector Set is the name given to Meccano in the USA.
To continue my visual arts based upon this wellknown
constructive toy of the twentieth century after the rural
Mecano years, I chose this equivalent to cover a different
angle from the same familytree. Exercises of my poetry
cyclus Single Makes Mass, full in progress then, were set
to songs by Mick Ness and me. With the addition of some
soundscapes he made, mainly in Hungary, an album took
shape that was kept in the vaults, like a good wine so to
speak.
It is a fair time now to trade with Out Of Print and make
things happen in a proper way to those who were involved
and those who will be.

Dirk Polak, 2014
