A native of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Travis Egedy, who performs under the name Pictureplane, has been rapidly gaining the attention of popular underground bands such as HEALTH, which praised the act on Pitchfork, invited Pictureplane to go on tour, and brought it to the attention of the Lovepump United imprint.
Pictureplane's combination of house, dance music and noise is noteworthy for its warm, uplifting tones and an ability to bring the listener along for a ride to a new era where everyone realizes his or her dreams. His 2009 release Dark Rift is perhaps less experimental than its predecessor, Turquoise Trail, but it represents a major step in the development of one of the indie genres more significant musical projects.
