Concert at LABoral. With a live set by one of the artists of the exhibition Visualizar el sonido [Visualising Sound], David Letellier, known as Kangding Ray. The French musician will present OR a/v live set at the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial.

LABoral has also programmed for March 30th, the date on which the fifth anniversary of its opening is celebrated, the presentation of Rapsodia [Rhapsody] by Fernando Gutiérrez + .Tape.

Kangding Ray. Born in France, he currently lives and works between Berlin and Paris. A graduate in architecture whose creative work encompasses different fields such music, performances and installations, Kangding Ray is situated at the crossroads between “digitalism” and a certain pop sensibility. In his compositions melodies are subtlety mixed with sounds generated by machines in a kind of rhythmic suite. He skillfully combines guitar loops, base lines, residual noise, acoustic instruments and digital anomalies to create a varied textured soundscape.

Halfway between “digitalism” and a certain pop sensibility, the compositions by Kangding Ray feature in live shows  known for reaching intense moments of musical experimentation, mixing voice samples with different instruments which include analogue machines, portable computers, Midi pads and the guitar.

Rapsodia. Halfway between interactive animation and generative art, Rapsodia is part of the Golondrias series and is a work by Fernando Gutiérrez and Daniel Romero who under the name of Fernando Gutiérrez + .tape. aim to reconstruct a lost arcadia in a playful, innocent and perverse way which invades the exhibition space and immerses the public in a strange ecosystem.  

The project which is being presented now in Asturias was selected for the ABC stand in ARCO 2012.

Both artists present an all-embracing proposal that combines sound with drawing, creating a hypnotic world whose inhabitants spend their lives dancing to a lullaby. As the dance becomes woven together, their bodies start colliding; a slight brush causes mutations and small accidents transform their organisms. This friction spurs on more reproduction and, at times, it is multiplied by spontaneous generation expanding the genetic diversity. With each encounter or alteration, harmonious sounds are emitted, forming a haphazard musical composition with unpredictable results. The same happens when they reach the boundaries of their habitat.
