kangding ray

Kangding Ray is David Letellier.

Born 1978 in France, lives and works in Berlin.

Studied and graduated in architecture in Rennes and Berlin, works in different fields : music, architecture, performances, installations.

Evolved as a guitarist and drummer in bands whose influences ranged from noise-rock, to jazz, before buying an akai sampler and moving on to electronic music.

Kangding ray's music reflects his wide musical background, and a particular way of merging beats and textured soundscapes into slowly evolving compositions.
KR combines machines with « real instruments » in a subtle and rythmic suite, integrating digital anomalies, walls of distortion, massive bass lines, micro-noises, voices and field recordings to create tracks that sit right between noise-pop, dubstep and experimental music.

On raster-noton he released two albums so far: stabil r-n073 and automne fold r-n094.
