The OO-Ray

July 7th, 2015 / Comments Off on The OO-Ray / by Mog/

The OO-Ray Profile

The OO-Ray is the alias of Ted Laderas, an improvisation and experimental cellist from Portland, OR. A systems biologist by day, he extends his experimental attitude to exploring the outer possibilities of the cello, often distorting, looping, or pitch-shifting his instrument beyond recognition into waves of reverberation and extended drones. Inspired by the gauzy textures of [ My Bloody Valentine ], he call his style “cellogaze” or “chamber drone”. His music explores the realms of electro-acoustic, shoegazer, and ambient.

EMPTY ORCHESTRA

Credits
Released 03 April 2015

All Production, Orchestration & Performances by Ted Laderas
Mastered by Cory Allen @ Altered Ear
Photography & Book Design by Ted Laderas | Album Cover by Ryan Lawrance McGreer

Empty Orchestra finds The OO-Ray (Ted Laderas) possessed with a new sense of urgency. Recorded over a stressful three years concurrent with his doctoral work in biology, Empty Orchestra is a work that protests the savagery of today while still maintaining that calm and peace can be reached through the turbulence. Available digitally as well as on cassette in both standard and deluxe box set packaging from New Ruin Tapes, a Lifelike Family sub-imprint.

Pie Are Squared

July 7th, 2015 / Comments Off on Pie Are Squared / by Mog/

Pie Are Squared Profile

Artist Bio

Pie Are Squared is the brainchild of Egyptian multi-instrumentalist Mohammed Ashraf. It started off as a means to learn about audio recording and production and has gradually evolved into his main means of expression, the main melting pot of all his influences that range from drone to black metal, electronica ro progressive and alternative rock. He describes the project as “one of the loudest/quietest/happiest/darkest things you’ll ever hear” and on listening to the music, this description seems as apt as any. He also has two other music projects, Headcase and Feed Me!

DISCOGRAPHY

2015 – Lucciole
2015 – Farewell​/​Gratitude
2014 – Split EP With [ APTA ]

2011 – (Hungover in) Siberia
2011 – Covered In Pie II | 2010 – Covered In Pie
2010 – Self-Title EP | 2010 – This Life Changing Decision Will Change Your Life

LUCCIOLE

Credits
Released JULY 06th 2015

Special Thanks:
Dennis DeSantis for writing this amazing book
Ableton for publishing it and my wife
Family & Friends Support throughout this project

All Songs Written, Recorded, Mixed & Mastered
by Mohammed Ashraf
Except: Pretty Little Creature
Written by Margherita Gambi & Mohammed Ashraf
A Cure to Cure; written by Amr Ashraf & M. Ashraf
Additional Bass Guitar on “A Cure to Cure” by – Amr Ashraf

My second full length, “Lucciole”, is the outcome of my “74 in 74″ project (the link is in the header), where I covered all 74 strategies in Dennis DeSantis’ “Making Music”. It is also the culmination of everything that makes Pie Are Squared what at is. Elements of every single EP or LP that I’ve released thus far can be heard on this along with new facets of my music that hadn’t been touched upon before. It’s equal parts glitch, ambient, noise, drone and rock and yet is probably my most accessible album to date.
