Los Angeles based, Electronic/Rock musician, visual artist, and multi-instrumentalist WVM has re-emerged with a stunning new single, “After the Fall.” A reconstruction of alternative rock infused with electronic elements, “After the Fall” is a prelude to a fuller rock sound from WVM.
“‘After the Fall’ is a unique mixture of electro and rock, I didn’t care about genres really, nor generic song structures, I just wanted to create something I wanted to hear. The genre clashing just happened that way, it wasn’t premeditated. In a way, I suppose it’s my subconscious combating people’s need to classify everything. Things have to fit a certain mold, I don’t want to fit any mold. I just want to create for my sanity. I create because I need to do it… there is no other way.” – WVM

WVM also composes music exclusively for modern dance performances such as this live performance of CRA by KAA (Modern Dance Company)
“The name WVM is a wavelength, everything in this reality is made of waves from the car you drive to the skin on your bones. What I love about these waves is that they can be molded into anything. The juxtaposition of the W and the M are intentional to remind me everything has it’s opposite. The letters can stand for anything you want but it’s just WVM.
“WVM’s music is much more personal and reflective and driven first and foremost by what he responds to instinctively. It’s as much a reflection of his sense of identity as it is a projection of his artistic voice.” Huffington Post
