渴望 向新空氣結合 慢慢變高 靠近樹身 快樂在旁 喘息 安詳 墜入地洞 另個宇宙 另個身體裡殘留 不同的痕跡 混沌世界 睡著醒著 建立部落 自覺生根 承載 因果 身體與容器 日夜交替 黑泥 白霧 精靈帶路 遠走 「睡著醒著」 雨連結天與地的通道 - Thirst A craving for new air It grows taller Closer to the trees There’s happiness A gasp Serenity It falls into a hole Into another universe Into another body, in which remains A trace Of a primal world Sleeping, Waking A village is built The roots underneath come to life They carry the weight of Karma The body and the vessel Day turns into night Through black mud And white mist The spirits lead the way They walk far Sleeping, Waking The rain links heaven and earth

我聽過 我看過 你在我身邊 我聽過 我看過 我們上山 你總是慢慢的走 看著天空 走在瀰漫的樹裡 果實花朵 敲打著 天色漸漸暗了下來 煙霧瀰漫 果實花朵 敲打著 敲打著 海在頭頂上 海睡眠 若無其事我躺著 海睡眠 鳥依舊編織山的形狀 我撫摸 我撫摸 我們睡入 我們睡入 碎花星辰 碎花星辰 - I’ve heard it, I’ve seen it You’re next to me I’ve heard it, I’ve seen it We go up the mountain You always walk so slowly Looking at the sky Moving through the lush forest Fruits and flowers, beating Daylight fades, darkness is falling A fog spreads Fruits and flowers, beating, beating The sea is on top of my head The sea sleeps I think nothing of it and lie down The sea sleeps The birds, as always, weave mountain silhouettes I caress I caress We sleep We sleep In this floral cluster In this floral cluster

烈日 灑落 老人 行腳 衣袖 擺動 作物 舞蹈 濃煙中 濃煙中 眼光閃爍 濃煙中 濃煙中 通往天際的路 追溯 母親 身體 裂縫 穿越一道光 穿越一道光 - The sun scorches, the old folks move Their sleeves sway, the crops dance Through thick smoke, through thick smoke, their eyes twinkle Through thick smoke, through thick smoke, a road leads skyward Return to the source. Mother, body, crevice A ray of light passes through A ray of light passes through

告別後你帶他走 選擇條遙遠的路 懸垂樹木在耳語 河水平靜緩緩流 隨著 星月 漫步 一顆遠星 沉睡 喜悅 漫步 一顆遠星 你像風 也像河流 張開手 張開手 - After saying goodbye, you lead it away Choosing a distant road Overhanging trees whisper The river quietly, slowly, flows Along with the moon and stars, it wanders A distant star Deep sleep pure joy wandering A distant star You’re like the wind, you’re also like the river Spread your arms, spread your arms

我看著我肩膀上的精靈 在起霧的街 我輕輕唱出微弱的聲音 噢 天空預知 我看著我肩膀上的精靈 他對我笑 空氣中散發出海的味道 腳下是海洋 你坐著看我 眼睛是星星 星星是河流 河流是眼淚 為什麼如此簡單 如此清晰 河邊喝水 夜裡的星光刺傷我們 他什麼都不說 只留下呼吸 和巨大的月亮 巨大的月亮 我時常想起金色的夢 你的經過 頭低低的 什麼都不說 - I see on my shoulder a spirit On a fog-filled street I sing in the lightest, faintest voice Oh, the sky already knew I see on my shoulder a spirit It smiles Scattered through the air, the taste of the sea Underneath my feet, the ocean You sit, looking at me Your eyes are stars The stars are the river The river is our tears Why is it this simple? This distinct? At the riverside, while taking a drink Nighttime starlight stabs us It says nothing It just breathes With the gigantic moon Gigantic moon I always remember golden dreams You pass by, Head hung low, Saying nothing

心 眼神 把心打開 雙手長出了一朵花 安靜沉重夢恍惚 長出虎斑的尾巴 跨不過去就用沉的 反正海水相連 心 眼神 把心打開 月亮在你的胸前 呼吸折疊 河流梳下了一片 綠色羊絨 把心打開 把心打開 - The mind The soul within the eyes Let the mind go Growing out of your hands, a flower Quiet, entranced, engrossed in a dream A striped tail unfurls I can’t cross over, so I submerge The seawater is a link The heart The soul within the eyes Let the heart go The moon on your chest Your breath collapses The river leaves a piece of Green cashmere Let the mind go Let the heart go

你變成金色的 我安靜的聽 我變成金色的 你安靜的說 好幾位老人在歌唱 好幾位老人在歌唱 生命會有機會 孩子們爬上最高處望著遠小的家人 被永恆遺忘的故事裡雨水筆直的打在 老人乾裂的臉上 望著遠小的家人 大地搖醒了夢 留下哪一個圖騰 洪水淹沒了城市 洪水淹沒了愛 人們漂流 人們漂流著 阮的慈悲 阮的慈悲 生命會有機會 生命會有機會 街道上堆滿落葉 我知道我們一樣 夜裡相擁入眠 一朵彩色的花 你變成金色的 你變成金色的 - You have turned golden, I quietly listen I have turned golden, you quietly say So many old people are singing So many old people are singing We still have a chance at life The children climb to the highest spot, looking at their loved ones down below, Who look small and far away Their stories are forever lost and forgotten, and the rain pelts The weathered faces of the old people, looking at their loved ones up above, Who look small and far away The earth shakes, waking from a dream Were there any totems left standing? The flood wiped out a town The flood wiped out love People drifting People are drifting Oh Mercy Oh Mercy We still have a chance at life We still have a chance at life On the streets, dead leaves pile up I know we are the same At night we hold each other as we fall asleep One flower, vibrant with color You have turned golden You have turned golden

象徵性的神秘知識 解決社會與環境問題 頭髮綠色羊絨 重複中有點變化 有時直覺像是累贅 跌跌撞撞 高原上傳來吟唱聲 稀稀疏疏的來往 海浪和聲 海浪和聲 聽一首遠洋的歌 聽一首遠洋的歌 - Symbols from a mystical wisdom Decode societal and environmental problems Hair of green cashmere Multiplies, varying slightly with each layer Sometimes intuition is a burden I watch it stagger along On top of the plateau, the sound of chanting Resonating ever so faintly The waves harmonize The waves harmonize Listen to a song of the distant seas Listen to a song of the distant seas

金色的月 轉身是你 無聲的光暈 抖落樹皮 星光流曳 冰涼如你 背鰭上的光 紫色荒蕪 絕望荒蕪 曾經感覺 我和你在一起 游向日月 雙翅與恍惚夢境 而風 吹散了你 佈滿夜空 背影 遙望遠方 活在古老 - Golden moon, I turn and there you are Your silent halo, bark flaking off the trees Starlight glistens in a flowing river of sky, ice cold like you I see a whale’s fins, shining, its purple hues growing deeper Despair creeps in I’ve felt this before We were together Swimming towards the sun and moon A pair of wings, a dreamland Then the wind Dispersed you, spreading you across the night sky Behind us A faraway place, a life long gone

about

共生、交錯:記錄這個島嶼上蓬勃生長的生命現象

《盤》承載了落差草原WWWW成軍八年以來的生命累積,團員們各自以不同的視角,像是一起雕刻、探索著同一塊岩石,逐漸形塑出關於世界的獨特觀點和樣貌,團員們或身在新世界中探索、或像從空中俯瞰著一切,用像詩也像寓言般的口吻,記錄或者描述著災難、際遇、旅程,對應著真實也是幻象的瞬間。

擅長迷幻、民謠、環境、實驗聲響等音樂元素,落差草原WWWW將其旺盛的創作力於本張專輯集大成,以雙鼓結構起不規則的節拍,樂器與聲響交織出更多維度的層次與情感,試圖梳理出我們心中某種屬於南島亞熱帶的韻律與思維。

有別於以往較為故事性的敘事手法,專輯以更宏觀的視點演繹《盤》這個架空世界裡的空間、時間、狀態、事件等各種主題。《盤》以更成熟的敘事風格,同時也反映出台灣社會的現況與充滿混沌與獨特生命力的姿態,提出更深一層的反思,也訴說著無限的生命與輪迴。

Symbiosis & coalescence: Registering the flourishing life forms on this island

The album <Pan> (utensil or plate in Mandarin) contains the collection of life experiences in the eight years of formation of Prairie WWWW. Band members, each holds a different perspective, carved and explored the same piece of rock and from there shaped their unique take on the world.
They explore the encompassing new world, gaze down from the sky, and with their poetry and fable-like language, they record and depict the disasters, the fates, the journeys that correspond the ephemeral yet authentic moments.

Adept in wielding the psychedelic, folk, environmental and experimental elements, Prairie WWWW has reached their pinnacle of creative capacity in the album <Pan>. By interweaving the irregular rhythms of double drum-kits, the instruments and sounds present multiple layers and emotions that Prairie WWWW believes resemble the pulses and thoughts that belong to a subtropical island.

Unlike the narrative structure of linear storylines in their previous works, <Pan> seeks to exhibit a more macroscopic view of a fantasy world and the various subjects therein: its space, time, condition and events. <Pan> has a more mature narrative style that reflects the current state and the chaotic yet vigorous essences of contemporary Taiwanese society and further contemplates on the eternal cycles of life and transmigration.
