Biography

There are few musicians who manage to explore the convergence between techno and experimental as successfully as David Letellier.
Producing under the moniker Kangding Ray for almost a decade, he has released his music exclusively on Raster-Noton and Stroboscopic Artefacts. The aesthetic domains of these two labels epitomise Kangding Ray’s complex sound as one that tests boundaries, evolving tirelessly in its exploration of texture, rhythm, and sound design.

Letellier’s foundations in Rock and Musique Concrete give his music a vitality and uniqueness that has won fans the world over, from devoted clubbers all the way to discerning avant-garde–electronica aficionados.

Those who’ve followed Letellier since his debut album – 2006′s Stabil – recognise the conceptual gravity behind his releases. Through a string of recent EP’s and albums, culminating with the critically acclaimed “Solens Arc”, Kangding Ray has demonstrated an ability to maintain his artistic approach while delivering direct and powerful club-leaning tracks and darkly cinematic soundscapes.

The forthcoming “HYPER OPAL MANTIS” for Stroboscopic Artefacts heralds a new era for Kangding Ray, exploring the tension between the natural and artificial, the body and mind – core themes of the Techno genre. The means of creation, focused around technology and interactions with machines, contrast with the emotional response to sound, the mystical ritual of collective dancing, and the ethos of liberation and tolerance embedded in the culture it has produced.
