Album Notes
“mwvm is content to express himself in sound, and fine sound at that.... too interesting for brain-dead chilling.... too clinical for stoner drift.... ideal for open-minded listeners....”

mwvm is Michael Walton, an electronic musician based in County Durham in the United Kingdom. He officially started mwvm in the fall of 2005, but experiments with delay pedals & home recording date back to 1996. He has spent the last few years refining his sound; focusing on guitar manipulation, repetition, & ambience. His minimalist creations are produced in a self-induced solitary environment; but within this isolation, he has found his music to capture the interest of a large audience both nationally & internationally.

mwvm’s pieces are carved out of haunting glissando melodies that intertwine through layers of harmonics, warm swells, & textured static. The sounds are built around guitars that could be mistaken for keyboards in the classic Silber tradition of Remora, Aarktica, Lycia, & If Thousands.

The initial release of mwvm’s demos in 2006 found critical acclaim on internet mainstays like Unpeeled & Brainwashed & garnished attention from several indie labels. 2006 also marked mwvm starting to go out of the studio & into the live environment playing festivals in the UK. The live experiences helped Walton to further realize his sounds & led to his debut full-length Rotations, a soothing & intriguing collection of indie ambient that sounds like a flash-frozen waterfall melting back to life.
