落差草原 WWWW；實驗民謠樂團 / Prairie WWWW; An experimental folk band formed in Taipei, Taiwan
2015年完成第一張完整專輯《泥土》,這張概念專輯是從「自然」出發,並用各種不同形式的創作及體驗,去探索台灣這塊土地上藴涵的訊息。 整張專輯的內容奠基於團員們集體創作的詩作〈泥土詩〉以及兩次於台東取材所經歷的故事, 由各種自然採集、聲響、野外即興和歌曲所構成一張完整的概念性作品, 專輯裡的〈泥土 詩〉是我們嘗試每位團員各自寫下對於「自然」的想像或記憶,可以是一句話、一個詞或一首 詩,每個人寫下文字後,再集合起來輪流即興編輯,最後並獨立設計且正式出版為一本詩集。

In 2015 Prairie WWWW finished its first complete album “Soil”. Its concept derived from “Nature” and the exploration of profound information from the land of Taiwan through different variety of creation and experience. The content of above album is based on the poem “Soil” collectively created by band members and stories happened in their twice tours to Taitung. They gathered all kinds of nature sounds, improvisations and country songs to form a complete conceptual work. The poem “Land” in the album was written by each band member about its imagination or memory to “Nature” which came out to be a word, a phrase or a poem. After impromptu composition took turned by band members, an independent designed poem collection was published formally.
