SceneFour is primarily known as the team responsible for the “rhythm on canvas” medium, having released art collections over the past few years featuring a highly select group of drumming legends, including Bill neighborhood (BLACK SABBATH), Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD) and david lombardo (KILLER).

SceneFour, a design and branding firm in Los Angeles, uses LED technology to transfer the unique style of musicians onto a canvas. The art would provide a “musical imprint” as unique as an artist’s autograph.

“Each guy’s works are drastically different because their styles and techniques are different,” Cory Danzigerwho co-founded SceneFour in 2004 with Ravi Dosaja graphic designer, told the New York Times.
