“Nurse (with Wound) music is surrealist music” - Stephen Stapelton, interview in The Wire magazine, 1999. Well, yes this is certainly surreal in that it Stapelton/NWW continues to conform to no ideas except that of his own. Ah, but is it ‘music’? Is the does Dick Cheney spew lies out of the side of his mouth? Is Celine Dion go in the category of “difficult music” ? |
Anyway, this one solid track of continous slab of fading in & out drone that actually gets interesting the more you listen to it. I found it easy to put this on and just let it go.
This easily becomes meditative & you just ‘go with it’s uh...’flow’. Eventually (give it about 9 & 1/2 minutes the main drone is joined by what sounds like bicycle passing by except they pass by in intervals of about 10-20 seconds.
Then the overall mix eventually gets more dense & has a random flat horn thrown in and then around 20 minutes past the waves from the original sound vary a little bit & a creaky wooden door being opened (25+ minutes into this piece) & some squealing saxophones or are those just more doors with hinges that desparately need oiling?) 45 or so minutes after. I've recently found out that the whole piece is supposed to be as if your on a ship - so make of that what you will. Maybe the 'bicycle noise' is supposed to be the wind whiping through the sails and so on. Total time is over 61 minutes. With a name like Nurse With Wound: it has to be twisted!
