Innovative art company SceneFour of Los Angeles has released the highly anticipated collection from legendary drummer Carmine Appice, titled "Purple". The grouping of compelling art images is yet another collaboration between an esteemed musician and SceneFour using the new technology of combining LED lights, cutting-edge photography and powerful drumming. The Appice collection is the newest in a series that also features such iconic rock drummers as Chad Smith, Steven Adler, Steve Smith, Carl Palmer and others."Creating this artwork has been a whole new journey for me," says Appice, who still tours with both VANILLA FUDGE and CACTUS, among others. "To think my work as a drummer could lead to such beautiful and striking images is not something I ever imagined before. I am grateful to SceneFour for giving me this opportunity to combine my skill as a percussionist with such a striking visual medium." "As with the other drummers we have worked with, Carmine Appice is of a rare talent," says Cory Danzinger of SceneFour. "The result from his work behind the kit is a series of images that jump to life with a brand new technology that allows normal viewing or 3D imagery when viewed through a special set of glasses that come with the artwork." Adds Appice: "'Purple' is a perfect title for this collection, because it is be basis for the color schemes of the collection which takes on a whole new dimension when viewed with the special optical lenses." "Purple" was released on June 1 at CarmineAppiceDrumArt.com in a limited numbered edition, signed by Appice. Currently celebrating his fiftieth anniversary as a recording artist and touring musician, Appice is a world-famous performer, author and music educator. He has played drums as a member of VANILLA FUDGE, CACTUS, BECK, BOGERT & APPICE, KING KOBRA, PLATINUM ROCK ALL STARS, and he has also lent his talents to Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osbourne and PINK FLOYD, among others. Appice's autobiography, "Stick It!" remains a best seller. His innovative percussion has earned him considerable renown among fans and critics alike, and earned him a spot on Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Drummers Of All Time" list. He currently lives in New York and Los Angeles.
