2015 “The absence of corners” art collection was a first career for Bill. room was one of the pioneers in bringing the new medium of rhythm on canvas to the world. Three years later, he offers a complete look at the collection and develops each piece with poetry, both written and oral.

Following the creation, release, and various exhibitions of the collection, room began to create poetry to bring readers into the work in a much more personal way. The result was 19 works, each associated with his entire collection of fine art debut. To add a new dimension to the experience of reading and viewing art in the book, room recorded an album of oral poetry to complete this experience.

Work with Scene Four, room used a sophisticated formula to create the visuals for the collection, using a range of rhythmic drumsticks and accessories that produce light, much like a painter using brushes and oils. The movements presented in the captured rhythms are then studied and developed into abstract works of art that present a dimension that is not normally seen by the human eye.

Based in Los Angeles, Scene Four specializes in working with music visionaries on the creation of works of art. Scene Fourprevious artistic collaborations have included releases with notably Dave lombardo (KILLER), Rick allen (DEF LEPPARD), Mike Mangini (DREAM THEATER), Chad smith (HOT RED CHILI PEPPERS), Mikkey dee (MOTÖRHEAD, SCORPIO, Nick menza (MEGADETH) and Hoglan gene (WILL) ..

room said of the project, “When I’m working on new ideas, musically, a lot of what gets played is guided by some visual appearance or form. there is always an image, sometimes a color attached to what is created … I am delighted with the expressions captured – of my head and of my heart. Their arrival on the web is magnificent. ”
