"Paul Klee, a Balloon, the Moon, Music and Me" receives Special Mention at the Prix Italia

Ergo Phizmiz's radiophonic work "Paul Klee, a Balloon, the Moon, Music and Me" has received the "Special Mention" in the category of music radio at the 2010 Prix Italia in Turin.

"An interesting and even daring experiment. The painter Paul Klee was deeply inspired by music and now Klee’s works are translated back into music and soundscapes. Movement and colour is suggested in an almost cinematic way."

The work, which told of an adventure through the paintings of Swiss painter Paul Klee in sound, was commissioned by the BBC for Radio 3's Between the Ears, and entered by the Beeb into the prize.
