A COLLABORATIVE PROJECT between some of the greatest drummers in rock history and a visual art team in Los Angeles has captured rhythm on canvas.

For decades, the movement and approach of fine artists has been studied and compared to rhythm. Most notably Jackson Pollock’s abstract work in the 1950s showcased “rhythmic nature” in relation to his splattering of paint on canvas and the patterns produced.

In 2009, SceneFour set in motion a plan to begin working in the “mindset” of rhythm. The project would begin with picking the greatest drummers to establish and pioneer a new medium called “Rhythmic Expressionism.” Rhythmic Expressionism uses performance to create the artwork. Using drumsticks that lit with various colors, patterns, speeds and temperatures, the drummers would perform these rhythms that would translate to abstract artwork eventually to be laid to canvas. These works would showcase the individual drummers’ speed, technique, style, and creativity.
