VVRSSNN, released on K Records in 2003, is the only full-length album made by musician Adam Forkner under the band name VVRSSNN (pronounced Version). While it was promoted as Forkner's debut solo outing, the album features many collaborations with other artists. Opening track Double Dragons features vocals by Dave Longstreth and synthesizers by Franz Prichard of Yume Bitsu. Bruised Blood feature vocals by Bobby Birdman. Come Out (K-Hole Version) features Jeremiah Green and Eric Judy of Modest Mouse on drums and bass, as well as Phil Elverum (of The Microphones/Mount Eerie) on various horns, and Calvin Johnson on various sounds. Blankets Made Of Snow is a remix of a song by Y.A.C.H.T. which appeared in its original form under a different name on Y.A.C.H.T.'s debut album Super Warren MVII in 2004. The song Guilded Golden Ladies is an early version of a track that appears on the White Rainbow album ZOME. Track titles like Comeouttoshowdem, Bruise Blood, and Come Out all reference the early tape-phasing compositions Come Out (Reich) by minimalist composer Steve Reich. Soon after the release of VVRSSNN', Forkner permanently changed the name of his solo project to White Rainbow.
