Travis Egedy, prophet of the Pictureplane Post-Physical reality, has just had his Old Testament reworked into the New. A plethora of friends and artists, in collaboration with DIS Magazine, have taken the dance conceptualizations from his work Thee Physical and mixed them into a new dimension of sound. With disciples ranging from Tearist and Shams to Grimes and Unicorn Kid, the selections here are truly essential pieces of our modern rave philosophy:
Pictureplane’s “Thee Physical” was a conceptual work about how we, as humans, relate to our 3rd dimensional world by experiencing it physically through touch. and our experience of being human inside of physical bodies in a post-physical digital age. this collection of remixes is a continuation of these concepts, each remixer being hand selected by Pictureplane to work with the digital skeletons of each song, to carry out their own visions of what Thee Physical meant to them, and their physical forms. This remix double album, is the 7th Dimensional Rip. which is an ongoing conceptual art work by Travis Egedy (Pictureplane). Each Dimensional Rip is meant to be just that: a rip or tear within space and time. a way of putting something out into the universe that helps to alter perception and the very world that it exists in. past Dimensional Rips have been anything from group art exhibitions, a zine, a mix of slowed down happy hardcore, or a performance artwork inside of an art museum. the 7th Dimensional Rip is no different.
Along with audio, we are also given visual thanks to Extreme Animals. The duo of Jacob Ciocci and David Wightman have shaped a Twin Peaks-inspired video for their remix, featuring narration by the Log Lady and enough nightmarish imagery to send you hurtling straight into the Black Lodge.
