▼WV053: Mong Tong 夢東 - 台灣謎景 Music from Taiwan Mystery

This LP record is the soundtrack of Mong Tong's art book series "台灣謎景 Taiwan Mystery". The book is a collection of Taiwan's cultural and mystic attractions, including special temples, purgatory facilities and Buddhist mummies, which took more than six months of fieldwork and photography to put together the book "Taiwan Mystery".

"台灣謎景 Music from Taiwan Mystery" I & II limited cassettes originally released by Karma Detonation Tapes in 2019-2021. This LP includes both releases with remastered audio.

蒐集台灣特殊廟宇地獄場景肉身佛
不思議館畸形建築陽具崇拜等特殊
景點集結成書原聲帶上下集全收錄
採樣迷幻合成器之聲重製母帶首次
化身為黑膠格式對聯謎底終於解開



“Each book is a luxuriant assemblage of photos capturing mystical esoterica from across Taiwan: temples, purgatory facilities, Buddhist mummies, unusual buildings, phallic worship shrines. As audio accompaniment, Music from Taiwan Mystery augments the hand-assembled feel with a blend of slow-paced electronic psychedelia mashed gracefully with samples from vintage video games and film.”

"We make blurry and raw music. Imagine that if ancient people could play guitar and bass, what would their music be like?"
- It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine interview
www.psychedelicbabymag.com/2020/08/mong-tong-interview.html

"Mong Tong can be seen as representative of larger trends in the bleeding edge of the Taiwanese music scene, then, while also distinctive in their own right. But it could be that Mong Tong’s in-betweenness is precisely what makes them so distinctive."
- Wepresent

Mong Tong is brothers Hom Yu, Jiun Chi (they also play in ​Prairie WWWW​ 落差草原 WWWW & Dope Purple) and 仝. They listened to what they describe as "Dianziqin music 電子琴音樂" along with video game soundtracks, vintage Asian movie samples and psychedelic music. These inspirations combine with Taiwanese folklore and a love of conspiracy theories to form what they describe as "superstitious music". Mong Tong means many things in Chinese, but the translation they choose to fit their music is “the east-side of dreams”.
