PRANA CRAFTER

Prana Crafter

MorphoMystic

    Prana Crafter is William Sol, a musical mystic who blends the raw energies of nature with guitars, synthesizers, singing bowls, and a dose of flow-consciousness. The resulting sonic nectar flows out from the amplifier, cascading in the mind of the listener, splashing mantras against the listener’s third ear. Some music is meant to entertain, to be consumed like flashing patterns on a TV screen. Not so with the music of Prana Crafter. This music is a sonic-tapestry of energies that are meant to envelop the listener and deliver a message that, as Sol puts it, cannot be known through symbol or through sign.

    Likened to artists across the psychedelic and folk spectrums—Popul Vuh, Agitation Free, Six Organs/Ben Chasny, —Sol’s self-professed mentors-in-spirit Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, and Manuel Göttsching are present as well in familiar and surprising ways. In review it has been said that Prana Crafter’s music is “an example of psych-folk at its finest” (Raven Sings the Blues), “like a long lost pressing from the early 70s, it’s a mist shrouded mysterious meditation” (Shindig Magazine), and even that, “few other musicians are making music as ambitious and genuine as Prana Crafter” (The Active Listener).

    Will has said he thinks of himself as a conduit when recording and with ‘MorphoMystic’ Prana Crafter are creating truly Cosmic Music, a synthesized mediation – think if you will of Terry Reilly and Sandy Bull blending their hypnotic energy flow together. ‘MorphoMystic’ is a 35 minute kosmische inspired acid opus that lets your mind venture in the slipstream, between the viaducts of your dream before gently flaoting you back down to earth.

    Presented in a lush Gloss Laminated Outer Sleeve with exquisite artwork design by John Nicol.

    Symbiose

      “Symbiose” is a split LP featuring two panoramic deep-field oozers that sustain interest, gently wandering the cosmos, through smoke rings and across star clusters, filling the space that stretches between Eastern and Western America and continuing the musical thread that connects modern American underground artists to the European birth of kosmic music. Like Popol Vuh and Ash Ra Tempel, “Symbiose” sinks its roots into the liminal landscape of the listeners neuro-hemispheres, creeping like black-light illuminated mycelium, passing through subterranean pathways of inner experience, emotion, and vision. Those who love modern acts like MV & EE and Ben Chasny will likely enjoy this album as much as European space rock and Pink Floyd aficionados, because this Symbiose is an interaction between two organisms to the advantage of all.

      Bodhi Cheetah's Choice

        Prana Crafter’s Beyond Beyond is Beyond debut is an electric woods walk. “Bodhi Cheetahs Choice” rambles, soars and flows through a heavy fog of psychedelia.

        The music of Prana Crafter is most easily tagged acid folk but such a reduction misses the electronic and avant influences, the boggy atmospheres and synthesized meditations. Like the forests that creator William Sol roams in rural Washington state, Prana Crafters music is both familiar and ever-changing. Without pledging devotion to any one, Sol invokes great spirits of the past with acoustic and electric guitars, synths, and hand drums. Not so much an album as it is a channeling, “Bodhi Cheetahs Choice” needs to be heard by the third ear
