Work type: Performance.

Daytime Event - T1929412630

A day of experimental music,sound and performance, including a number of participants from Glasgow’s vibrant music and visual art scenes and culminating in a performance by the seminal experimental, industrialist, surrealist act Nurse with Wound. Nurse with Wound was an experimental project formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton influenced by a number of musical genres including Krautrock, freewheeling jazz improvisation and Musique concrete. Stapleton’s fondness for dada, surrealism and absurdist humour are demonstrated in much of NWW’s output, whose influences range from cabaret to Cage, forging new and surprising soundscapes. This aesthetic is fully represented in the surrealist films created by Stapleton which accompany the group’s performances on stage. Tramway will host a number of participatory art works and events in the lead up to the evening’s performance with Nurse with Wound, including work by Luke Fowler, John W. Fail, Mark Vernon and Barry Burns. Other highlights include music by cult DJ’s Optimo throughout the day and a pop up stall hosted by the Glasgow based underground record shop and label Volcanic Tongue. This event is a co-production between Tramway and Optimo.
