Unsound Adelaide: Friday

Morton Subotnick, Nurse With Wound, Lee Gamble & Cut Hands


Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

In his first ever Australian performance, pioneer of electronic music Morton Subotnick plays his iconic 1967 album Silver Apples of the Moon, the first electronic work ever commissioned by a record label. The ground-breaking album used oscillators, filters and early sequencers, and here Subotnick, at age 80, revisits Silver Apples on his classic Buchla synthesizer. This enormous evening also unleashes the sounds of Steven Stapleton’s legendary Nurse With Wound project which has been conjuring otherworldly atmospherics for more than 30 years. World renowned electronic sculptor Lee Gamble, fascinated by composition, decomposition and abstraction, synthesizes and then resynthesises the genres of jungle & techno, and founder of cult sound-experiment outfit Whitehouse, William Bennett showcases his new weapon of choice, afro noise project Cut Hands.
