Ergo Phizmiz – The Faust Cycle

"Maverick British composer, collagist and People Like Us collaborator Ergo Phizmiz has made his latest work available for free download. It’s a 15 hour concept record themed around the house of Dr Johann Faustus and the extraordinary creatures who populate it: “Artists, birds, bird-people, walking fictions, ventriloquists, a cassowary, running chairs, walking gramophones and myriad automata.” This epic of sound design, three years in the making, can be downloaded from complete with psychedelic artwork by Moritz Gruenke."
