DO or DIY with People Like Us – Ergo Phizmiz Special
Wednesday 15th September

http://www.wfmu.org/peoplelikeus

Join Ergo Phizmiz in the studio for this week’s DO or DIY featuring the premiere broadcast of the entirety of Ergo Phizmiz’s score for “La Puce de Neige” (“The Snow Flea”), a mime puppet-opera for Buchinger’s Boot Marionettes, which premiered in Marseille, November 2009.

The show, created for children, tells the story of Kerugug, a snow flea who in the Arctic who is displaced to Antartica through a hole in the world, and his journey back – with an evil ice-cream in hot pursuit, sneaking snow fleas to use as anti-freeze in his produce. The piece combines field-recordings of Inuit folk songs with a memetic score that references Mussorgsky, Moondog, French folk songs, Augustus Pablo, Prokofiev, Strauss, and Raymond Scott.
