EA1 EA2 was originally released on the small Weilheim-based label Payola in 1999. EA1 EA2 is a cool, calculated album. It is about reducing and pausing; less free-jazz than their debut, like in "D.B. Track," where the nervous shimmering of electronic noises flows into the warmth of a swelling trombone. This isn't a minor record, but it is intensive in a more introverted manner. The different influences of the Tied & Tickled Trio are clearly separated: sensitive jazz without fear of pleasant soundings, noisy but carefully-measured electronics and the polyrhythmic drumming of Markus Acher and Casper Brandner, who had both started the Tied & Tickled Trio as a drums-only duo in 1994. EA1 EA2 deals with the recording studio's possibilities in a curious and open-minded way. It phrases the difference between the live and the studio situation, which from then on became a challenge for the Tied & Tickled Trio. Seven years later, the band released film material of one of their recent concerts on their DVD Observing Systems on Morr Music as a result of this process: their concerts are not just a reproduction of their studio recordings and vice versa.
