Nurse With Wound – Echo Poeme: Sequence No 2
Nurse With Wound is a British experimental music project, formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton, John Fothergill and Heman Pathak. In 1979 Heman left the group, and in 1981 it effectively became a solo project of Steven Stapleton, with a variety of assisting musicians over the years. Focusing on aesthetic ideas and philosophies that began with the Surrealist movement, Stapleton has referred to the project as a contemporary extension of Surrealism and the project has been referred to as ‘purveyors of sinister whimsy to the wretched.’ Echo Poeme: Sequence No 2 is an album that consists of one 49 minute track of female vocals, spoken and chanted, looped to create a haunting meditation and evoke emotion. Steven Stapleton employs a variety of hums, sighs, and spoken phrases to create a ghostly ambience. NWW has come to be regarded as the master of avant-garde post-classical experi-mentation, and Echo Poeme has come to signify an important direction in its vast oeuvre.
