Day For Night Multimedia announces the redesign of the official website of trumpeter, bandleader, producer and A&M Records co-founder Herb Alpert. As frontman for the legendary Tijuana Brass, Alpert rose up the charts during the 1960s with over 15 top-ten hits; many of their singles and albums pushing the Beatles out of the #1 spot. With business partner Jerry Moss, he created the legendary A&M Records; leading the Artist-as-Label-Owner movement in independent music.
Designed in joint association with Jim Kelley Design Group, this site represents three key dimensions of Herb Alpert, through his Music, visual Art – Alpert is an accomplished sculptor and painter – and life.
Many thanks again to all of those who sent in their votes of support and encouragement on our submission of “My Nature” by Eric Scott, for the 2007 American Idol Songwriting Competition.
A jangling love song with a hooky chorus, “My Nature” is far less the kind of stuff AI finales are made of (…let’s face it – it’s not a power-ballad) – but easily sounds more at home with its 80s and 90s Britpop influences…
Launch of the new homepage for the Day For Night imprint and label. This portal for the eBay Day For Night One-Stop-Shop, also features a live Day For NightNetRadio stream, and featuring additional samples from newest MP3 singles from our own NIGHTblog and full-length releases.

The evening of Saturday, May 20, 2006 marked the date for the Peter Moraites “Spelling Test” video album Launch Party, at Ocean Front Gallery, along the legendary henna-tatooed, roller-blading boardwalk in Venice, CA. Many thanks are due all-around to the friends who so kindly attended and contributed to the evening’s success.
After sundown, the courtyard space at 801 Ocean Front Walk rapidly became a buzzing outdoor lounge, complete with wine and appetizers, and illuminated by a pair of projection walls (one outdoor, the other inside the gallery) – and featuring a continual and mesmerising litany of classic music videos and intoxicating visuals throughout the night.
Inside the main gallery space, a hushed audience was treated to a soulful, pop acoustic set by Canadian artist Marianne Baker, after which came the anticipated, and warmly received screening of the video album/DVD “Spelling Test,” which comprises nine original Pete Moraites music/art videos, with soundtracks by Moraites (“Simpletongue”, “Twitterpation”, “Smokercraft”) and Salvador Dalek (Day For Night’s Eric Scott, remixing and collaborating with Moraites). The presentation was transformed by Moraites’ own closing speech; a poignant thanks to his closest collaborators – an inspirational hommage to the value of encouragement and the creative workshop process.
Eleven o’clock heralded the premiere live performance of Salvador Dalek (Eric Scott on laptop and mixing desk, with Pete Moraites providing visuals and live VJ-accompaniment throughout the set) – unleashing a storming set of progressive house, trance, and drum’n’bass remixes from the Day For Night back catalogue, spanning a breakneck-56-song live remix (in under an hour’s time) and highlighted by a glowing flute performance from soloist Kelly Wilson, during “Twitterpation” – another key highlight of the evening. Our ears are still ringing, and all in a good way.
The Salvador Dalek remix CD “Beat The Time (Day 055)” will be released soon, featuring highlights from this live set, plus a fully-remixed podcast of the set to also follow soon… Check back at this link for details very soon:
This interview with Eric Scott, conducted by Prof. Aaron Prevots of Southwestern University for his series “The Creative Process” and covering topics ranging from the beginnings of Day For Night, the power of influence, and artistic and business strategy.
“Out of the blue
As a clear sky reflects vast oceans
Secrets unravel in silhouettes and shadows
From profile to paper improbable portraits emerge…”
The full exposition was delivered to the art world as a 14-minute video on DVD packaged in a handsome metal tin.
Eric Scott of Day For Night composed and produced the musical underscore and custom audio design, as well as to create the DVD menu interface design.
The full-length selection from the soundtrack can be heard on the Rhythm Factory release “Music For Targeted Television Advertising” (Day 052).
