Producer previews new album with video for 'Acto'; watch the video below

This Friday, Raster-Noton will release a new album from techno stalwart Kangding Ray and ahead of the album's release the video for album opener, 'Acto', is now online - you can check it out above.

The video, made up of a collection of sped-up frames showing the growth of different flowers, provides a fitting accompaniment to the subdued, floaty sounds of the opening track for the new album which is entitled Cory Arcane. The album is the producer's fifth and follows his last full length release just last year. A message accompanying the album’s announcement explains the story somewhat behind the album’s name. “Cory Arcane found her comfort zone in a constant state of crisis, and her liberation through love, sensuality, and high-speed internet access,” it says. “As some might recall, she used to struggle with her own decay, navigating an intricate web of bureaucracy, endless social-media scrolling, 24-hour news channel feeds and marketed strategies of seduction." You can pre-order the album here.
