A “man” tells his fabulous past as an ape, from his capture to his adaptation to the world of men, to the members of an Academy of Sciences. This edition of A Report to an Academy
, a short story by the great Kafka, is accompanied by a musical piece especially written by Nurse With Wound (here, Steven Stapleton, Colin Potter, Andrew Liles
, Matt Waldron, Quentin Rollet
, and It could be Worse).
Second edition (2022).
A British music project formed in 1978 by Steven Stapleton
, John Fothergill and Heman Pathak,
Nurse With Wound (now Stapleton's variable geometry project) is an essential figure of English experimental
music since the early 80's. With more than 150 releases, alone or with other musicians, Stapleton has swept widely different musical styles, from industrial music to mambo, through electronics, improvisation, electroacoustics, with a lot of humor.
