QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali unveiled and discussed his debut art collection crafted from the new medium of "rhythm-on-canvas", "Cum On See The Noize: The Electric Art Of Frankie Banali", on Saturday, September 26 at Forgotten Saints in Hollywood, California. Video footage of the event can be seen below.
Banali has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on "Cum On See The Noize: The Electric Art Of Frankie Banali", which will be officially made available on October 2.
SceneFour is the team responsible for the "Rhythm-On-Canvas" medium, having released blockbuster art collections over the last five years with a highly select group of drumming legends, including Bill Ward (BLACK SABBATH) , Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD), Mickey Hart (GRATEFUL DEAD), Jose Pasillas (INCUBUS) and Dave Lombardo (SLAYER).
The process of creating artwork from rhythm is an extensive one that begins with the drummer utilizing a bevy of drumsticks that light in a variety of ways similar to that of a painter utilizing brushes with different colors. In the creation process, the drummer is crafting rhythms that translate visually to abstract imagery before they are brought into the SceneFour studio, manipulated meticulously, and laid to canvas.
