Bill Ward, English Musician and Visual Artist (1948 - )
As the drummer of one of the most influential heavy metal bands in history, Ward was an integral force in the creation of the heavy metal genre. With his pioneering, orchestrational style of drumming, as well as his highly acclaimed solo recordings, Ward is greatly respected among insiders for his intuitive style of play and innovative songwriting. Ward recently released his first solo album in 18 years, titled “Accountable Beasts,” and is currently finishing up another album slated for release later this year.
The Absence of Corners Collection captures Mr. Ward’s experimental spirit and translates onto canvas powerful abstract expressions of his music. The series is part of the Rhythm on Canvas project from SceneFour, the Los Angeles based creative collaborative responsible for developing this new art movement that for the first time manifests music performance into visual art.
