Kangding Ray, real name David Letellier, is an electronic musician from France. David lives and works in Berlin and is part of the Raster-Noton family. He has also released music on Stroboscopic Artefacts.
With just three live performances under their belt, zero release and a few low-quality recordings of their gigs, we went to Italy to see SUMS (Kangding Ray & Barry Burns of Mogwai) perform their debut appearance in Milan for the opening night of Electropark Exchanges.
To celebrate 20 years of operation, raster-noton recently announced a special book publication, worldwide tour and an audio-visual installation “White Circle”, covering the various branches of the german platform.
Electropark Exchanges announce a three-part series of concerts in Milan featuring performances from SUMS: Kangding Ray + Barry Burns, Hans-Joachim Rodelius and Stefan Schneider, plus Bugge Wesseltoft and Christian Prommer.
Kangding Ray goes into detail about his new album “Solens Arc”, discussing how his musical landscape has developed since the success of his previous album “OR” and how his new album is a direct reflection of functionality.
