CHUI WAN CHUI WAN is a four-piece experimental psychedelic rock band from Beijing, China. They get their name from Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi's Qi Wu Lun, a mystical work on inner sageliness and outer kingliness. Zhuangzi writes: "谓风吹万窍,发出各种音响" - "When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein."

Inspired by this concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane, the core of Chui Wan's sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulong and guitarist Liu Xinyu. Their lush arrangements for guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments, and random sound samples often eschew reliable melodies and vocal harmonies in favor of occasional passages of minimal drone or maximal sonic layerings. Bassist Wu Qiong and drummer Li Zichao provide a stable ground floor from which the band can continually float away, like a sound half-heard and soon gone on a gust of wind.

Chui Wan's 3rd studio album "The Landscape the Tropics Never Had" was released on Maybe Mars records in 2017.
