mwvm is Michael Walton, an electronic musician based in County Durham in the United Kingdom. mwvm was created in the fall of 2005, but his experiments with delay pedals and home recording date back to 1996. He has spent the last few years refining his sound, focusing on guitar manipulation, repetition, and studies in drone ambience. His minimalist creations are produced in a self-induced solitary environment; within this isolation, his introspective and often meditative music has captured the interest of a growing audience both nationally and 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 the use of guitars and will be appreciated by anyone who enjoys Stars of the Lid, Eluvium, Remora, Aarktica, Labradford, Rameses III, Tim Hecker and Windy and Carl.
