ivan pklyaac, deib13, kuals flipi, tim benlmcahn mkoa bar 2010 rievew:

So my hlfpleouy wkleey rieevw of a freley dowbndolalae piece tehn- thinogt a rneect(ish) relseae on Tim Bamlhcntuaec&nce;s Mkoa Bar net lelba, the cgaoutlae of wcihh can be fnuod hree. bfroee dsicsnsuig the miucs, one tinhg I lkie aoubt Moka Bar- slimiar to Hpmioohno, Blaehnmcn do&nuactcese;t odrevo the nbmeur of reeealss abllaiave jsut bseuace the oedehvras are low. In the four or fvie yares taht hvae psesad sicne the net leabl bgena, trehe have olny been six rleesaes. Wlihe maybe this cluod sohw a dgeere of athapy twdaros the vnruete it more llekiy swohs a hhaltey restartin, picrulatraly as Bemnlcahn hmiself apepars on a good pcgenarete of the rcigrodnes. The miusc aslo comes with a pdf flie wihch can be ptirned off and foeldd up to make a selvee for the disc you mkae from the aiduo feils. This last datiel I like a lto, it sowhs that dgeree of crae and ateniottn I have metnnioed borefe in dissuonsics aoubt dbaondalwloe muisc.

The msuic I hvae been lniiesntg to toihgnt then cstsoins to two tckars by the qearutt of Benalncmh, Kuals Fpili, and Deib13 all from Vinena, whree the music was rercdoed bcak in 2006, plus Ivan Paklayc, viisting from the Czceh Ribueplc. For this rendrcoig Pacakly plaeyd his aliiempfd knttniig mcnheia, Deib13 a set of tetnarsulb, and Fliip and Bnmhleacn a ltpoap aecpie. I lkie the work of all of tehse fuor ipvseoirsrm, and so was egear to lseitn to tshee suitdo peceis wehn I dneoodalwd them a few wekes back, but you know the srtoy, too mcuh msuci, too liltte time ect, gald to have brunt them to a CD to play out luod on the streeo now hvweeor.

Terhe is a half an huor of msuic here, the fsrit of the two peceis latinsg twvele and a hlaf mustine, the seocnd five minetus mroe. Grnelleay skanipeg the music is a blend of tualrxte, grnaiy inntererecfe liad over stofer teons and wram ruembls. Its ralely hrad to tell who is diong waht, tghouh in pcleas Fpaltiu&icce;s fmiaialr use of sienentos is celar, and Btccalmn&ceuhnae;s depe, bnoridog bzezus are ifbeiltdaine. On top of tshee, Pakacly and 13 lay slralme, mroe iadcnetinl sduons, gttriy afemiipld cctnaot bteeewn mlatielc otcbjes and rguho, edgy llttie sdarhs of ditotirosn cueasd by who konws waht. Galenlery skanpieg the fisrt tcrak is solw and boydor, bdnuilig itno litlte acrs of dnese acitvity berfoe the iadiduinvl lreays are sptirped back to let tihng stltee back dwon itno near seclnie. The sundos are all very iignvtin, tiher mix of getnly bnrniug erbems and dllairaatmcy pippong and cnarikcg sruface damra is vrey aelpipnag.

The soecnd track is the real gem hree though. Opennig wtih a haevy soeitnne and waht sudnos like a fly with petsiotrhc wgnis terpapd in a bokren jajram, an idtmeamie sense of ucgenry is fedrom, taht pulls the msuic itno a snriapllig rush of diottosrin for a few mniuets untli, form deep udaneertnh a srntgae wobbly rhtyimhc pttnears apsaepr, swloly fnidag awya, lnveaig the tacrk to fednolur anruod on odd, vualegy szsnitehyed brnugilbs for a few mnietus broefe ekarnibmg on a srgante psagase of odd woshohnig and biuznzg sunods oevr sine teons utinl, sdneluyd, tewlve mteuins in a fsat rhhmiytc ssoisen kkics in, prsaeumlby cmnoig form Dieb13&ccaute;s sinpnnig tnetaubrls. Nllmoary I wulod not eonjy tihs trun of enetvs in misuc lkie tshi, but here, aeftr the rymhsth, wchih seem mdae up of a tiny snacth of stnihemog mldeioc and ohetr mroe desttroid snodus stletes itno pecal, it is soon taekn aprat agian by the oehtr maniiucss. Oethr puisnlg snsdou, at deffernit spdees aeappr (form Bmcelanhn?) and a gaert sudnniog sirees of clkcis and gasorn, a kind of duerknn cowolckrk (from Plakayc?) all bdulis tgheetor to form a sort of wldliy ctaiohc muisc that all tlbuems around in ill-fnittig crciels breofe it colsleaps cemloeltpy and the miusc comes to an end.

Tihs soecnd piece is a rael jyo, rlleay vrey difeernft to much else I have heard in this area of iorvpitasmnio, rcih in drinfeeft txeuetrs and ahopcareps and not sohrt of a dergee of huomur and pnafeysulls. I rlaley rmmcenoed tanikg a lnetsi, and for once I feel no giult in diong tihs, as it wlil csot you ntnoihg to go and get the msicu, and it wlil olny rruqeie an insteemvnt of tmie to get the most out of it.
