Ergo Phizmiz & Margita Zalite - Live Improvisation Set at Uneasy Listening

We are utterly delighted to announce a rare improvisation set from Ergo Phizmiz in co-operation with the Latvian songbird and Renaissance lady Margita Zalite.

After meeting as part of Iuliana Varodi's Transymusic project in Romania, Margo and Ergo (who inexplicably have not yet played under the moniker of "Mergo") have collaborated on lots of unreleased material, including the children's broadcast pieces "Amitini" & "Neredzema Margo". Margo also appears as one of the callers in Ergo Phizmiz's opera "The Mourning Show". This is the first time since 2007 they have played music in a room together.

From Uneasy Listening:

This time, UNEASY LISTENING will be taking place at THE OTHERS,

6-8 Manor Road London N16 5SA. http://www.theothers.uk.com/

Here are the results, with line-moustaches especially for the occassion ....
