France - Last summer, DJ Florian Picasso wowed his fans with a livestream set, accompanied by hypnotic projection mapping and pyrotechnics, from his great-grandfather Pablo’s former residence in Cannes.
The light show at Villa La Californie brought the exterior of the building to life and delighted not only his neighbours on the Riviera but also an audience of millions worldwide. In an equally compelling follow-up, Florian recently staged another stream from inside the villa, this time in conjunction with artist Cyril Kongo, for the benefit of Maria Bravo and Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Foundation. The show sought to raise awareness and funds for Vietnamese orphanages.
The event was staged from the living room of the villa which was transformed, with the addition of paintings, sketches and sculptures to its original state as Pablo Picasso’s studio. As Florian’s set progressed, Cyril Kongo worked beside him to paint a unique piece of art using a Pioneer DJ CDJ-3000 as a canvas, which was later auctioned with all proceeds going to an orphanage in Vietnam.
Pioneer Pro Audio provided the technical support for the event and provided a range of equipment to help power the stream. As well as the combination of the CDJ-3000 multi-player and a DJM-V10 mixer supplied by Pioneer DJ, Pioneer Pro Audio furnished the event with two XY-3B loudspeakers and two XY-218HS subwoofers to deliver powerful in-room sound, as well as a pair of XPRS-10 powered speakers for monitoring.
Florian Picasso enjoyed the performance: “It was such a blessing to be able to serve a good cause and give back to my roots by combining music and art.”
Kei Aikawa, managing director AlphaTheta EMEA commented: “We are very happy that Florian chose to deploy a Pioneer Pro Audio setup to complement what was a fantastic fusion of creative arts on behalf of such a worthwhile cause.”
