This is gorgeous! I am a sucker for the cello, but even so, it is a sumptuous, beautiful, mysterious collection of music. I was lucky enough to get one of the limited edition of cassettes of this, and basically wore it out waiting for the digital download. This is so beautiful, Ted Laderas is amazing!
The OO-Ray returns with his new 30 minute cassette entitled *Vespers*. Haunting, faded, and noisy, *Vespers* evokes both the meditative and dark side of the winter months. *Vespers* takes full advantage of the medium of cassette tape, suffusing its audio with hiss. Its soundscape is littered with digital glitches and other signs of degradation. Lovers of sci-fi soundtracks and medieval music will find something to enjoy in *Vespers*.
The digital release includes a live set recorded at Ford Food and Drink on 12-5-2015 and is an exciting peek at the evolving sound of The OO-Ray project.
