Ergo Phizmiz (PLC) / Music for Theatre, Radio & Puppets (2008-2016)

33 prime musical slices from prolific composer, theatre director, film-maker, writer and collagist Dominic Robertson / Ergo Phizmiz (PLC), recorded between 2008-2016, from scores for theatre, puppetry, radioplays, and opera. 

Running across the gamut of compositional processes, pieces of instrumental music, electronic atmospheres, and sound-collage adventures, the album is a series of sonic cartoons that, taken out of their original contexts, summon up marvellous imaginary animations. Close your eyes and try it!

The pieces included on this compilation come from the radioplays "Paul Klee, a Balloon, the Moon, Music and Me", "Conversations With Birds", "Sonora Mystery", their own theatre pieces "Gargantua", "The Third Policeman", "Gala", "The Mourning Show", "Fulcanelli's Shoes", "A Fairytale of World War II", and the puppetry of Patrick Sims "La Puce de Neige", and "The Old Man of the Mountain".

"Music for Theatre, Radio and Puppets" is part of the ongoing emptying of the archives of the Public Limited Company known in the commonplace as Ergo Phizmiz, a division of Avant Hard Productions Amen, and may hymns always be tap danced to.
