Kangding Ray - "OR" (video)

by Timothy Gabriele

Kangding Ray have always made intricate lapidary electronic slices. Their latest album OR is no exception, as evidenced by this video of their title track. The narrative of the piece is slow, giving the listening ample time to immerse themselves in the textures and detailing of the song, including a keyboard line by the similarly poetic Ben Frost. A man dangles idly in space in the video, that’s pretty much it. Yet, watching the video as filmed in ultra slow-mo HD shows that that’s actually far from all. Likewise, Kangding Ray sound pretty simple in print, but listening to them closely shows that this is hardly the case.
