There was a time in recorded music history where if someone showed an interest in something not directly related to music, it was considered the end of their career. You could not do something “other than” music or face the risk of constant questions about your music downfall. That has definitely changed in the last 20 to 30 years. Music and art have always been close companions, and Incubus drummer Jose Pasillas has had a union with his art for years, showing it on a number of their different projects. Now he’s about to share that love of art with an exhibit beginning on November 1st called Abstract + Rhythm Landscapes, which will feature 100 pieces, each one hand numbered and signed by the artist. The exhibit is said to be his combination of rhythm and art, or what the press releases calls “a sonic landscape where rhythm is translated onto canvas through the use of a sophisticated process that converts drumstrokes into color and light.” Pasillas is also into stencils, so you’ll definitely see a mixture of the scholastic with certain graffiti styles along the way, or as Pasillas himself states, “I also like repetition, and stenciling is perfect for repetition.”
