Recent collages with paper, card, wax, watercolour, marker pen, glass, spray paint, books, postcards

Have a glass of wine, have your own private view - it won't be full of annoying people. Just you, your wine, perhaps a record playing, preferably 1920s popular music. You could even go about your business, in peace. You could even dance. And why not?

Electronic Music 2001-2006

An emptying of the cupboard, 30 previously unreleased nuggets of electronic music by Ergo Phizmiz spanning five years. From the jazz-sample-collage of "Alethea", to the party-electropop of "Ferret", to the 1920s Broadway hip-hop of "Lazy Bleat's Legs", to the ethereal circus synth waltz of "Trapeze", to the abstract glitch funk sound-poetry adventure of "Arpolage", this is as unique a collection of electronic music as you are likely to find in a month of Sundays. Which would mean a lot of roast dinners with this kaleidoscopic odyssey of blips and bloops as your musique d'ameublement. So there you are.

Put that in your special pipe and smoke it.

Including collaborations with Blank Beats, The Travelling Mongoose, & Martha Moopette. Michael Jackson, Hans Arp and Harpo Marx also rear their lovely heads. Close listeners may also spot a 9 year old Vulnavia Vanity shouting about trousers.

This album was recorded in York, Billingham, Lincoln, Withern, London, Newport, Freshwater, & Ventnor, 2001-2006. Collated and Mastered in Bridport & Withern, 2011-2012.

All the tracks are made by the arranging of sampled and recorded sounds on a timeline. No MIDI was injured in the recording of these pieces.

Listen, spread the noises, tell your friends.....
