At a time when I had forgotten what kind of music Silber was famous for, I was blown away by a three song demo of mwvm. - Brian John Mitchell

a brief history of mwvm:

Michael Walton an electronic musician based in County Durham in the UK. He officially started mwvm in the fall of 2005, but he’s been experimenting with delay pedals & recording techniques since 1996.  He has spent the last few years refining his sound, focusing on guitar manipulation, repetition, & ambience.  His minimal creations are produced in a self-induced solitary environment; but within this isolation, he found that his music could capture the interests of a larger 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.

In 2007, Silber released the first full-length from mwvm, the critically acclaimed rotations, which was followed by a remix EP in 2008.  In 2012 we are pleased to present the long awaited follow-up, Had Yr Pash.
