Disco Droppings’ NYE post of 2009 was Pictureplane. Now, on the eve of 2011 here in the U.S., this Denver electronic talent is back! If you’re in the Seattle area on 1/6/11, Pictureplane will be performing at the Vera Project with Teengirl Fantasy and USF (I’ll be DJ’ing in between sets!). I’m pressed for time and the Pictureplane answers are in faded font for some reason, sorry!
DD: heyyy Pictureplane. What are you doin right now?
P: Hey! I am sitting on my computer in the city slang office in Krausberg, Berlin. I just played my last show of a short tour with Small Black..I am flying home to Denver tomorrow.
DD: I’ve never toured before, how does traveling all over affect you creatively? Do you do it often?
P: I do travel a lot. It can be hard, and it gets tiring and annoying sometimes, but ultimately it is a hugely rewarding experience. I feel fortunate for all of the experiences I have had and for all the people I have met. It is a huge influence on me creatively, and really, I try to live my life as art and performance while I am travelling. At times I feel like a social scientist, studying human behavior.
DD: Last time I talked to you it was right around new years last year, how do you feel overall with this year coming to a close? Where do you see yourself heading in 2011?
P: 2010, was an amazing, wild, and beautiful year. 2011 is going to be all about my new album. Shit is epic.
DD: I’m quite honored to DJ for a bit at your upcoming Vera Project show in Seattle, any especially fond memories in Washington for you?
P: This will be my 3rd time playing The Vera Project! Um, breaking down in a super tiny eastern Washington meth town, and staying there for two days singing kareoke in a bar to a bunch of truck drivers is a pretty “fond” memory.
DD: Any songs running through your head at the moment?
Here’s to 2011! May the force be with you x)
