Chui Wan

MUSIC #4


The name Chui Wan 吹万 was take from classical work 《齐物论》 by philosopher Zhuangzi 庄子.

 

Dream pop, rock, experimental…..Chuiwan is a band hard to classify, but they’re definitely squarely situated within the Zooming’ Night scene. Some of their members include Yan Yulong, who performs in a number of bands and also does solo electric violin compositions in the vein of Philip Glass and Steve Reich, and Liu Xinyu, who does minimal electronics.

 

Chui Wan is formed by frontman Yan Yulong and female bass player Wu Qiong in 2010. Later on guitar player Liu Xinyu and drummer Vincent joint in. But Vincent had to return to his home country in September and in came Josh as his replacement. The first gigs took place in D-22. Yan Yulong and Liu Xinyu also have other joint projects beside Chui Wan.

“吹万”二字取于庄子的《齐物论》。

 

关于Chui Wan这个乐队,有人会提到这样的关键词:迷幻、庄子、民族、东方什么的。提提就好,不要当真。最客观的描述或许可以是这样:这是一个由北京年轻一代实验音乐人结成的,以歌曲创作为主的摇滚乐团体。在Chui Wan之外,各个成员参与的其它音乐项目能列出一打,Chui Wan也许是其中最接近传统摇滚乐的一个。摇滚乐或许不是他们的主食,尽管他们每天都会尝上一口,但同时他们也会佐以更多来路不明的调料。甚至,有时调料可以反客为主做成主菜,那便是Chui Wan的样子。

 

乐队最初由闫玉龙和吴琼组建,随后吉他手刘心宇和鼓手John Vincent Marrett加入。
11年9月Vincent回国,Josh Feola加入,后于12年年底退出。
四名成员音乐趣味各不相同,迷幻为其交集。即兴中碰撞并采编成曲,在新迷幻摇滚中加入了其他元素。
2010年乐队开始在D-22燥眠夜演出,闫玉龙、刘心宇也各自有其他音乐计划。
