NURSE
Saturday, April 25 and Sunday, April 26, 12-6pm

The Contemporary Art Gallery presents a weekend of epic sound working with Vancouver based NURSE.

Performing two six-hour presentations, this group of tonal alchemists intend to create free improvisational music or Free-Continuum Music. They comprise two basses, one full of riffs, the other a distorted drone, a haunting slide guitar and one constant ‘phase-drone’ guitar, providing the continuum. A wash of space synths make this spare drone-scape lush. The performances will be ongoing throughout the day, the sound reacting to and in response to the environment as it unfolds over time, a constantly evolving texture ebbing and flowing throughout the building.

NURSE prescribe heady medication. Releases to date include Heads Remain (C20 on Soldierpumps); Camping Jam and X-Ray (both cd-r on Get Medicated).
