blanc.
DJ/producer/remixer/artist
blanc. is the critically acclaimed solo project and alter-ego of Maynard Plant, lead vocalist of the popular Japanese pop-rock band Monkey Majik. The project began in 2003 with the meeting of Maynard and Sendai City co-resident Takeshi Hanzawa of FreeTEMPO. Maynard sang and wrote the lyrics for the house tracks “Sky High”, “Duet” and “New Days” on FreeTEMPO’s 2nd album “THE WORLD IS ECHOED” under the pseudonym “blanc.”. This collaboration, now legendary, marked the beginning of blanc.’s career. Since then, blanc. has collaborated with many electronic and house musicians. In March of 2008 he produced and released his first album “new world”. blanc.’s much anticipated 2nd album “canvas” was released June 10th, 2009. The new album is a fusion of electronic, organic, house and pop music.
