Content-Management Design (CMS)
WordPress blog designed as a collection of contemporary works by the late artist Andy Lakey, who passed away October of 2012.
“The biggest conundrum for an artist can be how to present the oeuvre,” begins composer Eric Scott. “That was exactly the challenge I faced with over 2000 works, some of which don’t fall into standard album/single release formats, and many of which are regularly being updated as they go from thumbnail, to demo, to final, to revised final! It’s a mess…”
NIGHTblog became the digital solution for a life lived online; with the full music canon in blog form of Eric Scott’s output within the Day For Night catalogue, as well as productions, remixes and collaborations. The decision was made early to use SoundCloud as the robust player and cloud platform to store the music, with extensively detailed studio journals, anecdotes and commentary from the author.
Each track is also accompanied by mood and genre descriptors, musical key and tempo info to make the music licensor/supervisor’s job a little easier… search “funereal” and “uptempo” and see what you get?
Purchase and download links also available.
Band From TV is a collection of (literally, that)… television stars who rock, for their favorite charities together.
The meeting of Greg Grunberg (founder, drummer & vocalist from TV’s ‘Heroes’, as well as ‘ALIAS’, ‘Love Bites’, ‘The Client List’, ‘Felicity’) with Hugh Laurie (‘House’, ‘A Bit of Fry & Laurie’) originally set the band’s dynamic in motion when they collaborated on an episode of ‘House’ and the rest is now history. With Bob Guiney (‘The Bachelor’) on vocals, James Denton (‘Desperate Housewives’) on guitar, Jesse Spencer (‘House’) on violin, Scott Grimes (‘ER’), Teri Hatcher on vocals, Brad Savage on bass and many other guest vocalists from Jorge Garcia to Wayne Brady, to Jennifer Love Hewitt, to… oh, the list just goes on.
Day For Night re-developed a new site presence for the band to complement their need for an easy to maintain site interface in light of their busy touring schedule.
