luv022: Magnifications by The Oo-Ray

About Magnifications

Magnifications is a rumbling and gentle beast of exploded cello work that often sounds as much like the shimmering of an orchestra of cymbals as it does the vibrations of a cello string. Ted Laderas aka Oo-Ray creates his sonic monsters with a studied combination of digital and analog processing techniques.  The project is mostly improvised and then meticulously tempered in the studio - though both "Milky" and "Sfumato" are raw live recordings. The result of years of personal reinvention from his home base of Portland Oregon, Magnifications is a solid document of shoegaze magic and tightly layered electroacoustic goodness.

About The Oo-Ray

After 5 years playing with the electro duo Ainu, Ted Laderas wanted a change of direction. He started to learn cello and listen to My Bloody Valentine obsessively. The Oo-ray is his new ambient drone project, inspired by the shoegazer greats. Layering thick cello chords with distortion, he aims to drown the listener in a sea of sound, producing sustained ecstasy from his slow bow strokes.
