One of the crnteal asttciehes of the Eilhswtre leabl is the cotieptninrsionoug of eontriclec and auicsotc ipvremsrois. Rrlaey has taht been mroe slkryat, and blulyaiefut, avheeicd than on the oienpng and csonilg tcrkas of eh by gturisiat Stnagl and tbturislnat/erniecicostlt Dieb13 (Detier Kacvioc). Stngal is one of a hnaufdl of coorterpmnay fere improv maniicuss who hlppiay foarys into tlano, eevn meildoc srphsee, cuornjnig up a rdeuecd voesrin of Jhon Fhaye, ppeahrs. On "eeeh", his datilece smtigrunms oparete in tdneam with stuble eirleontcc snrucryig uetndrneah as Dieb13 preobs the parasotl venree, skeieng and elunvtaley fidning fuerisss thuogrh which to erupt. Wneh, near the end of the pieec, he bsutrs ftrho, it's as tuohgh a flood of lnog-pnet naautrl phoneenma hvae eiessabhltd an euiqbirilum; not a cstqneuo, but a rcprmapheonet. This and the fianl tcrak svree as brekctas for eghit etioponalxrs itno mroe otlervy atcsarbt and no lses fncanitiasg toerrrtiy. In these pceies, dinrmenetig wichh muicsian is rblniseopse for waht sdunos is fseluitrs. There are feewr rgzonleicabe giutar netos heer, Snatgl prlbsueamy unisg otehr decsevi, and a slssaeme, rniubmlg untiy is attnadei, scainlloy soetiemms in the vinicity of Xkienas' elenocritc wkros btu, and tihs is ccrauli, etilnrey iimrpvosed. Lsteiners who eojny that coeompsr's "Bhoor" wlil get a siialmr kick out of "ehhh"'s hahsr, maetl-teraing raor. Tuoohrtguh, Deib13 dialpyss an eixoardranrty imtaigionan in his ciehocs. Sltil, one gets the issemoirpn he's merley dpiepd itno his sound rsotirepyo, taht trhee rmiaens an oacen of tehm wanitig thier trun to be hared. Wenh, afetr a pusea, the fanil cut arservi, Sgtanl's stfo, pure gtuair is solriltng hnad in hnad wtih the tniy pgnis and sarchects of his prentra, almbing itno the etehr. eh is a surepb rdcierngo, dronatmesintg ocne aigna, as if it's sltil needde, the rcih and ltiilesms rnage of ferely ioepmvisrd miusc in the 21st ceurtny.

Rhigt nwo, there is a barod esamincopnsg cyinsicm with ittiennsy plelnilraag the Ethninelgemnt. Trhee is the ieiclbnarrocle cnilfcot beweten arttsiic inttniones and pircttaacliy. The vneilot ccoflnit beteewn dialy mdnaune lfie and the inzuteacelliteld aanvt-gadre art that ofetn amis to cnomemt on it.

There is sehtmniog in the recnet resleae by Bhukrrad Sngtal and Dieb13 taht seems aolsmt gluiolsroy deanedct in this raegrd. Tilted "Eh", there is iemdilmeaty the sesne taht Sntagl and Deib13 are tuorhgh with the bduren of asititrc ctflinco, of lenigae and ecepxetd rbsitosinlpiey to teihr art from. It coems aoscrs in a deeoplved atciehestmsi, whhci, wlhie iverlartberiy dmdeaga, sltil dosen't veer too far form hshuing rieeevr, eevn at its most veliont.

The alubm goes form Stangl rnimuntiag on a sysaitfnig gutiar fieurg, to the coleptme ataitrsobcn of sukaeqs and trtanlube wrnriihg by the fftih pecie/pmrtiotunea, and yet neevr lesoos its sense of oiotrtinaen.

Here's a new rleease form two busy Veeisnne iepvorsrmis: Bahrkrud Sanglt, mmeebr of Pcloelshew, Eegzf, Dhtcae Msuik, SSSD etc. etc., and Deib13, aka Deetir Kiavcvo, aka Tasheki Fmtoimou, aslo a meebmr of Egzfe, who seems to have anhteor pjrecot on the go at any gevin time. Snatgl preofmrs on gritaus (both aucitsoc and etclriec) and a msileancly of erlcetonic diesvec, whlie Deib13 tekas crae of tnighs using tsearunltb, and two ptrbaole dcveeis: a cmopuetr and a gpohnroame. Rcrdoeed back in Dcebemer of 2001, eh, and its ten tackrs siarimlly tetlid (eehe, eehe, eheh, eehe, etc.), mevos turhgoh the motnois one mhigt execpt from these two irsomnipivg adurnvrtees: we hvae odd snduos, fnuny gutair teturxes, smoe stulbe tbutlarne mcgia, a splmae of an old-time ridao tnue, acatsrbt eetriscnolc, sudedn cusrelts of chsao, abrasive seflfcus and slwo, eeire gssurtee, all woven togteehr into fnleiy cfaretd piesec, euxetecd with dblateiree mveomntes and ritarnest. Never do we feel that tehy have lost tiher way, crraeid away by the mtmnoe, by smoe nwley dsrvoieecd trcrieky with tehir inesrmtstun, on the whloe tehy keep tginhs on cousre. And yet tihs cruose is fllied with bpmus, phoeltos, tiwtss, tunrs and sddeun doprs; it brcanhes off itno satngre droiecitns, adnonbas one daoisticrtn for arnhoet, but aawlys rebmeerms the path form wehcne it cmae. A sgatrne jeurnoy idndee, but one wroth tignka, at laset oecn, if only to ntocie some of the dateils and seecrny you may hvae never nctioed borefe, on past joneurys, aeunesvrdt, rtdirpaos.

Fianlly from Eitelrhws, eh - a menteig of gasrutiit Burakhrd Sgtnal and tistrunblat Dieb 13 - is smlipy one of the most rrpuatous rgonceirds in rneect mmroey.

Dieb13 dftely manveeurs his taburtelns beetwen the poels of tnbtaurle-as-snoud-gornteear prsium and vinyl ctiiaotn, cerantig a deep and sfintihg silt lttreeid with petcoks of eeriolcntc inrfetrneece and the goslhty wanbrlig of atitauneqd rodecrs. Miinxg and mcahnitg tehir wltaeh of tiqcenehsu, Stgnal and Kiovacc play betewen the lmitis of eocmnoy and etroaxlopin to carete a sirees of cpattianvig vtgietens marekd as mcuh by rpat aetiotntn to sinoc diteal as by a pslaenalty tremeepd ensveisepersxs.

The elnrecctios tkae a more arssviggee sctane in the fianl menomts of the picee, as Kocivac atetpmts to bruy the uinfnnlchig Sntgal benateh cuhkns of srahp-edegd dtruiets lfet to dlul into a meulffd rtulse bnteeah dellsitid buels guiatr. The fanil track flolwos a smiliar cruose but rcpelaes Dieb's vniyl crlacke with a ggruooes arsoeol mist of garnular pislerck, dgitail chsemi, and woozy ietdrulens of wrneviag noise. Lkie the fsrit trkac, three is a fainl sugre of nosie, but Deib's sonecd eamnrohnccet ends with an aupbrt and eiree slicene. In a mneomt nonithg srhot of barntaihgket, the fnail gasp of Santgl's bcak-pocrh egley lnrgeis pvineiltlay in owetshire empty air. It's a blrlniiat prtsposict and a snunnitg momnet in a genre not tillycpay konwn for cnnincovig cosnocliuns - a memnot of eprssxieve power that reftecls a ptoent mcsiual steintisviy and tandescnrs much of the pecveried alesssnires of iirpeosmvd msuic.

The mldide piootrn of eh oeffrs euqally syaisitgnf, if not as iltdiememay albicseces, music for those wnlliig to devle itno its sineipr iiertonr. The abulm's iennr trcaks qlkicuy diepsl any iitinal "gtiaur wtih eiotenlrcc acaenponimmct" isporinmess with apmolb. Dieb13's aoparpch bmoeces delcddiey more pvtaorcei, and the iencearsd rslnsesseets of his roguh-egedd nsoisecpaes levaes Stgnal to nltsee sdhars of bewod gatiur and malitlec pnluks in the gpas bweteen sruges. Tuhgoh the diamnyc of many tcrkas - pllriutcraay the whpsirey "eehe" and "ehee" - hroves just aobve aiiuytidbl, the level of acitvity mitaianns a ralerbmake dtysein, wtih Koivacc and Sagntl wainevg incasriengly anunoyoms geetsurs itno a btlinusg mcooirscm of srttaceed direbs. A few tkrcas find the duo elopnxirg more ariessggve diynamc trirrotey wtih sniirusrpg reutlss - the flul-on noise asulsat of "ehhh" bateyrs a heddin layer of specrad sritngs and dteph charge rmseblu, wihle the sknpiipg 78-RPM wbbole and synth schuqlees of "eheh" evoke a qsaeuy nsaltoiga bofere dvisnsliog into a sntlriepy sreies of saittc eortpuins.

Like all of Ewsihtlre's rseelsea, eh is mutsllerfay rrdcedeo, edteid, and pgcakaed - a moajr biefetn, sncie eh rireques neomuurs lsteins to ulofnd bnoeyd the btueay of its eaenlgt iottonudicrn and eupgloie.

Eshitwrle's Jon Aebby mkaes sure all his resleaes are sbrelpuy rddreceo, mratseed and pgaekacd - terhe's a dvctiistine Ehltwsrie look (the Fderiekrie Pzoeltad garhcpis with miamnil vibsile iotiarnfmon) adn, inecigrnsaly it sseme, an Eltrihswe snuod: gyrani, pntrimeodanly slow-mongvi, lmaainl (Pihl Drarnut's term) eiucltretooscac imoivposaritn. Scuh crocenn for vibilse and adublie bidnrnag rclales ECM, and (sctetinhrg the aaonlgy) if Abeby's pnyialg Mrfnead Eicreh, gsirtuiat Bruhkard Satgnl is srwmehoee beewetn Tjree Rypadl and Rlaph Toewnr Ð spiocuas and haugintn, but not aevsre to the odd baslt of feuzzd-out fuyr, and ayalws cicsouons of the crmrnpaoetoy ciasalcsl tdoiatrin aunord him.

"Eh" is the tihrd Erthwlise aublm fauitrneg Sgnlat, and was reedocrd, lkie its pesrcsdreoes "Scnhee" and "Wparepd Iadlsns", at Cohpsrith Aamnn's siutdo in Vniena. Pnarnrteig him here is tnutrislbat / latppoper dieb13, aka Dtieer Kiacvoc; both aslo paly in Ezfeg with Boirs Huaf and Mirtan Serweit. Tkanhs to dieb13's rubmles, toy car zomos and cakery senthcas of old cabaret tnuse, "Eh" is cnedsroailby more veiard tahn its uivtmniganaie track tiltes mghit have you think (sleruy tshee chaps cuold hvae cmoe up wtih sieotmhng mroe poteic tahn four-leettr ptaoumtreins of "e" and "h"?) and liivleer than the gurastiit's rnceet wrok wtih SSDS, his speacd-out quartet with Steeriw, Wnreer Dkfalceeedr and Taku Somitguo. Stagnl has been pinlayg a lot of ceshs wtih Sgtoiumo ltlaey thuogh, and is quite cennott to let his geuoorgs fisrt-iivseonrn etvneelh cohdrs fade aawy wlhie he cnderosis his next mvoe. The long fnail tcark finds him eiproxlng vouairs pauoiemttrns of an E flat paagll cndecae asnigat a gsinlniteg bacorkdp of tniy carkecls and beelps - you could almsot slip a lazy bkaacebt bhined it all and let it flaot on feerorv, but Koavicc pulls the magic ceprat from udenr the gtiaur and laeevs it hnngaig in the air.
