Notes

Pagan music that dances on the ashes of a burnt church party!

This release is free but for those who purchase it something special
will be sent to you on December 25th, 2016 after which this release
may well cease to exist.

--

V/VM returns after a ten-year hiatus by colliding two worlds together.

'Between nothingness & eternity' is a Mrs Mills party version of the
recent Tim Hecker 'Love Streams' album reverse engineered.

Bringing the party to the serious and the serious to the party.

THE PLAYERS:

MRS MILLS:

Was one of the biggest music stars of the 60's and 70's selling
millions of her party albums. Her musical contributions horribly
written out of the history of British popular music. Known for her
music hall style she was always reworking contemporary hits of the
day on her piano, so she would be well up for this kind
of shenanigans.

TIM HECKER:

Is a serious musician and long time V/VM fan from Montreal whose
subtle use of distortions, emotions and pain makes him a perfect
fit for the 4AD label, smoke machines and the colour magenta.

V/VM :

Pigs of the scene. They once helped Aphex Twin and got Chris
De Burgh a coveted single of the week in the NME. Releasing an
endless slew of serious works which were completely ignored or
branded as some kind of endless prank. Most famously they released
a tribute to Guru Josh which was voted worst record of the
20th Century by Paul Gambaccini.

--

THE PROCESS

Using the same process Tim Hecker employed when creating his
'Love Streams' V/VM also used the Melodyne software to get
midi-information from his pagan creation.

This stolen midi-information was then fed into a modern software
sequencer and sent directly to the 'Mrs Mills Piano'. The actual
original piano craftily sampled by the Cinesamples team at the
World famous Abbey Road studios in London, where Mrs Mills was a
resident recording artiste.

This dry as a bone piano render was then placed by magical reverb
techniques first into eternity, before then relocating back on
Earth in an empty Wembley Stadium.

THE RESULT

How does it sound ?

Pretty challenging for even the most staunch of Mrs Mills fans.
You can get used to it though on repeat listens.
The sound of the Mrs Mills piano as played by rotten trotters.

Magically though when mixed together with Tim's album it works
in a mysterious way, the party drifting in and out of focus.
In time sometimes, out of time at others.

The seriousness of Tim's work along side the party-party spirit
of Gladys Mills. It's the dream combination we've all been
waiting for. Allowing what can be a solitary listening experience
with Tim's work to become a group activity with friends.
