Pictureplane and Teen Girl Fantasy at Passion Club - Brooklyn
PicturePlane poses on the stairs after a landmark set in Brooklyn tonight.
Pictureplane style sounds future and very analog and kind of lo-fi.
I saw him in Brooklyn at one of my first photo gigs - the Glasslands and then a random warehouse in June of 2012.
Since then his style has solidified, he's added an incredible performance element with his dynamic dancer duo - two female movers who have signature styles for each of his tracks and combine elements of burlesque and horror with modern dance.
He manages to create a rock show vibe without stopping between tracks, which hearkens to a different time - when DJs mattered more.
After Pictureplane DJ Animal went on and played electro remixes of top 40 songs.
Passion club is a cool venue with decent sound and a reasonable capacity. It's interesting that it is a block from Broadway and Myrtle and the audience seemed predominantly non-hispanic and non-black and pro-hipster white. Also Pictureplane (I asked some of them and they indicated they were there for the spectacle and not an individual artist) draws a crowd of veritable steampunk goths. I can tell that's what they are even without the glasses. A group of girls had fangs for lateral incisors.
Thanks kindly to Pictureplane for chatting and explaining his live setup - he said he uses "an old computer program" to compose and has only hardware on stage now.
