LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler recently unveiled his fine art debut collection, "Dancing With The Devil". Completed with art team SceneFour, the release is a pioneering effort in the new medium of crafting visual art through drum performance.
The video below shows the creation process from inside the studio to the signing of the artwork. The collection's visuals are crafted from the new medium of rhythm-on-canvas, which is a unique artistic process that begins with Adler working with drumsticks that light, much like a painter uses brushes with oils. As artist, Adler constructed rhythms that would translate to canvas in remarkable ways for this collection. Then through an extensive second phase of creation, the images are brought into the Los Angeles studio of SceneFour. SceneFour and Chris Adler worked on the images to create this unique monochrome, metallic color palette.
"Dancing With The Devil" is more than a collection of art; it is a dimension of captured creativity. Each piece represents a visual of entire songs Chris chose and performed in their entirety at the SceneFour facilities. These are creative exorcisms intended to motivate and empower.
