Biography

Adam Forkner is a guitarist based in Portland, Oregon involved with several projects including Yume Bitsu, World, White Rainbow, and Surface Of Eceon (alongside Aaron Snow of Landing fame.)

Adam Forkner has collaborated both live and on record with many artists. Most recently he was featured on Devendra Banhart’s Cripple Crow album as well as Jackie-O Motherfucker’s Flags of the Sacred Harp. Other artists that Forkner has played with or recorded include The Microphones, Dirty Projectors, Little Wings (aka Kyle Field), Greg Weeks (of Espers), The Blow, Wolf Colonel (aka Jason Anderson), Thanksgiving (aka Adrian Orange), Yacht (aka Jona Bechtolt), Bobby Birdman, and The Watery Graves.

White Rainbow is a moniker used by Forkner for his project which focuses on ambient music as well as audio-visual installation and performance art. White Rainbow’s music is heavily influenced by minimalism, most notably the work of Terry Riley and La Monte Young, as well as psychedelic music and art.

In September of 2005, he performed ambient music and video art inside his “Full Spectrum Vibrational Healing Center” for 10 consecutive days as part of the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s Time Based Arts Festival. A five-CD, one-DVD box set of Forkner’s music and video collaborations was released in January of 2006 on Portland’s Marriage Records.

    it took me forever to realize that i needed to change the artist name before it could be scrobbled. so weird. is that because amazon lists it as Adam Forkner and not [[[VVRSSNN]]] ??? anyways, this is one of the best albums of our lifetime!
