Field Kit is an experimental electronic music duo from Berlin, Hannah von Hübbenet and John Gürtler. They took their name from an electro-acoustic workstation created by Koma Elektronik, a device that allows you to play with and control radio signals, sensors, and motors.

Motorized Piano, the second single to be taken from their forthcoming album, is built upon a rhythmical pattern played with a Field Kit-driven mechanical hammer on different piano strings. The rich sound of organic synthesizers and polyrhythmic piano structures are complemented on this track by a drum solo played by Nando Schaefer.
