DOC WÖR MIRRAN

releases


For those of you already somewhat aquainted with MT, it is probably pretty obvious that DWM has turned into a kind of "house" band. Indeed, both MT as a label and DWM as a recording project are very much inter-related and were formed at the same time by the same people. In fact, the idea to start a label mainly resulted from the wish to have an outlet to release the many recordings of DWM. Since there are so many DWM releases on virtually all kinds of formats and in virtually every musical style and spanning a time period of over a quarter century, it seemed like our standard format of simply listing the releases one after the other wouldn´t work, so as an exception to the rule, the various DWM releases have been put into sub-groups. Note that some releases might fit into more than one catagory below.

Please note, this is meant to augment our already published discography, to give much more in-depth info on each release, with a picture of the cover and info on label, how many were made and who played on each release. For general info on DWM, including news, info on concerts and exhibitions, please refer to our homepage.
