Ergo Phizmiz is a UK based radio producer, collagist, writer, composer, and filmmaker, who has worked across radioplays, installations, opera, songwriting, animations, and performance. His work is characterised by restless change and playful toying with history, art, music, science, and the limits between creativity & charlatanism, facts & fictions, copyrights & copywrongs, words & music. He likes Laurel & Hardy, and Kurt Schwitters, and Paul Klee, and Cervantes, and Morecambe & Wise.
His theatre work has included the experimental electronic multimedia operas “The Mourning Show”, “Fulcanelli's Shoes”, and “The Third Policeman”, which have toured UK & Europe on shoestring budgets to critical acclaim.
In radio he has produced a vast body of work for WDR3, Bayerischer Rundfunk, dRadioKultur (DE), Soundart Radio, BBC Radio 3, BBC 6Music, Resonance FM (UK) WFMU (US), and other stations across Europe.
He has released critically acclaimed songwriting on Care in the Community Recordings, and has also released music with Soleilmoon Recordings, Touch Music, EgoTwister Records, Womb Records, Sonic Arts Network, and many others.
Lots of Ergo's work is available free on the internet, released in collaboration with Headphonica, UpItUp Records, Womb Records, Proot Records, Surrism-Phonoethics, and his own netlabel Chinstrap, on which he also releases the works of a wide range of artists and vintage or found recordings.
