Doc Wör Mirran

The actual name „Doc Wör Mirran“ was thought up by Bernard H. Worrick while he and Joseph B. Raimond lived together in San Francisco in 1982, although both have known each other and have recorded together since 1979 (see the DWM cassette „Early Stuff“, released in 1994 on Masking Tapes). But the real history of DWM begins when Bernard H. Worrick and Joseph B. Raimond both moved to Nürnberg Germany in 1985, where Joseph B. Raimond bought an analog 8-track recording studio (the famed „Two Car Garage Studios“) and began to record what has since become a huge body of recorded work. The concept of DWM though from the very beginning was to combine music, graphic art, painting, sculpture, poetry and just about every other medium of art into one project. Although more or less coordinated by Joseph B. Raimond, the open-membership policy of DWM is an important part of the DWM philosophy, and is one reason why DWM has such a prolific and at the same time very stylistically varied output. Indeed, DWM likes to think of each new release as a debut release, for no two DWM releases are alike. In the early 1990’s, Bernard H. Worrick moved to Florida (his last recordings comprising the „Elfengrund“ CD), taking with him an important part of the group’s identity. But DWM has continued onwards without Bernard. Bringing Bernard back to Germany and returning him to the DWM fold has become one of the goals of the group. Although rarely playing live, DWM is not averse to live concerts, although playing live is not one of the priorities of the group. Since the departure of Bernard, DWM has become especially interested in collaborative efforts with other artists, both recorded and live. Recent developments with DWM include the formation of a new label within MT Undertainment devoted exclusively to the recordings, literature and artwork by DWM and its various members (see below for more information on these activities), as well as this, the DWM homepage, including the DWM Internet gallery. With the recent acquisition of a new digital recording studio, DWM has many new recording projects planned, so the future promises many new DWM releases. Stay tuned to this, the official DWM homepage, for news on all upcoming projects.
