From the Onion Cellar:
The Onion Cellar proudly presents the first ever Kangding Ray concert in Vietnam.
Kangding Ray / Sebastien Gesell / Josh Kopecek / BlipBlop / Dirty Fingrz / Tungdo
A very special evening that will take the audience straight to the meeting point of club culture and avant-garde, featuring an international world-class artist and Hanoi-based well-known musicians and DJs. Through Kangding Ray, Hanoi audience will be introduced to some of the most ground-breaking contemporary electronic sounds that are as innovative as danceable, and currently being much loved and appreciated in cultural hospitals of the world (the likes of Berlin, London, Paris, New York).
Influenced by his surroundings (Berlin – famous for its vibrant and adventurous arts scene) and a wide variety of other musical palettes from rock, pop to jazz, Kangding Ray’s music is uniquely situated at the crossroads of digitality and sensitivity. His compositions demonstrate a combination of melodies and machine sounds, integrating guitar loops, massive bass lines, residual noise, acoustic instruments, field recordings and digital anomalies, blending techno grooves with dark textures. Slowly evolving, his live performances are known for intense moments of musical experimentations, completed by intricate sampling of voices and different instrument layers.
Together with his friends from the legendary German label Raster-noton (home to the likes of Alva Noto, Ryoji Ikeda, Byetone, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and others), Kangding Ray has been extensively performing everywhere, from dance clubs to the most prestigious festivals dedicated to alternative arts and culture (London Alphaville, Berlin CTM etc). The Hanoi date on January 20 is part of his 2013 Asia tour covering Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam).
