JOURNEY'S LEGENDARY DRUMMER STEVE SMITH RELEASES "FABRIC OF RHYTHM" BOOK AND VINYL EXPERIENCE
Limited-Edition Package Combines Drum Art
with 14 Drum Solos
Los Angeles, CA - Steve Smith, the legendary drummer for Journey and jazz groups Vital Information, Steps Ahead, and more, has released a limited-edition book and LP package to complement his "Fabric of Rhythm" art collection. The package and art collection are available at www.stevesmithdrumart.com.
The 2013 collection included 13 art pieces built from rhythm. Working with SceneFour, Smith played an array of figures with lighted sticks. Photographs of the session revealed not only a colorful array of arcs, curves, and shapes, but also artistic impressions of Smith's technical and artistic approach to playing drums. The photographs were then transferred to canvas!
The new hardbound book combines these images with Smith's extensive notes on the creation of each piece. Included are never-before seen photos from his personal archive and an overview of Smith's career written by Robyn Flans.
A 180 gram full-length 12" record is included. Smith recorded 14 drum solos based on the individual art pieces (one piece inspired two solos). The audio presentation is meant to add meaning to each piece as the reader reviews the art. Smith has included detailed insights into the construction and performance of each solo inside the book.
Each of the 250 books in this edition is signed and numbered by Steve Smith. Each set ships with a Certificate of Authenticity from SceneFour. Shipping begins in mid-January, 2017.
