about

=Album Description=
“Shapeless Beast” starts from the lo-fi drone sound. A door of certain consciousness seems open in the dream.
“Moon” Leading by two drums and a flute and collaborating with guitars and synthesiser, a man and a woman are chanting
together a short poem searching and going forwards from their individual mist paths.
After entering “Eyewood”, as falling into a reddish lake, a drum beat suddenly penetrates into the second level of consciousness.
Being dizzy consistently and dancing at the same place, a unique rhythm with a strong tribal drum beats and fuzz guitar provides
a special trippy ambience. Withdrawn from the clear rainy “Callous”, contemplate with open eyes, emotions calm down gradually
and stories are ready to go to the end.Lastly it comes to the title rhythm “Wu-Hai”. Tapping finely and following the bell ring,
we sing softly and seem to be ready to get up and step out slowly, lightly and assertively.
Feedback sounds and folk funeral melody of Taiwan are unceasingly playing. Filled with consciousness and memories,
we watch the dead doing his last lingering around the border, farewell to the dead and enter the void which end the stories
just like that of “Travel Elegy” written by Wislawa Szymborska.The EP derives from the stories of aboriginals and
also life experience of Prairie WWWW‘s members. By three-phase ceremonies – searching, involvement and recurrence,
this journey is so written through deep profound introspection and reminiscence.

=Band Description=
Prairie WWWW is an experimental folk band formed in Taipei, Taiwan in 2010. Its music combines poetry, folk, ambient and tribal elements. The band seeks inspiration from the might of nature, and with a mixture of sounds and visual arts in their performances, they manage to bring forward to their audiences the experience of their unique soundscape visually and aurally.

The four Ws in Prairie’s band name are not to be pronounced, serving as a pictogram for a waveform, as well as the imagery of the grass that blowing in the wind.

ホラー映画のサウンドトラック、もしくはブラック・メタルのそれのようでもある不穏なイントロダクション。台湾国内ではすでに一定の評価を得ている彼らだが、その音楽性は活動拠点を同じくするドローン・デュオ、破地獄とも共鳴している。
このアルバムをリードするのは強靭なリズムセクションだ。ドラムスやタム、カウベルなどのパーカッションによって生み出される、ミニマルかつトランシーな反復。そしてこの重たい反復を基盤に、彼らの楽曲は進行していく。
"月亮"は、まさにそのような彼らの特徴が表れた曲で、力強いトライバル・ビートの上に男女ボーカルやフルートが儀式的な色彩を加える。続く"眼林"は、まるで呪文のような強烈なボーカル、サイケデリックなファズ・ギターと躍動感あるベース、土着的なパーカッションによる暗黒アフロ・ビート。そしてシンセサイザーのドローンから徐々にヒートアップしていくラスト"霧海″は没入必至の11分。
同郷の破地獄、更にはMaster Musicians of Bukkakeらにも通ずる、台湾エクスペリメンタル・シーンの暗黒サイケデリック・カルテット、ここに現る!
