Day For Night “Identity” (Day 008)

Book / Words & Images by Eric Scott

day008_tabletop_mini
Eric Scott is a writer, multimedia artist, designer and composer… and in his 2nd book “Identity,” (Day 008) he explores the gestalt of Day For Night, presenting a variety of visual identities (alternating between the personal, and those created for his clients) along with other “messaging” from the Day For Night history. To create this work, Eric has painstakingly reviewed, documented and organized his own personal work, writings, designs & creative observations to present a cross-section that is the salient tip of the Day For Night (creative) iceberg…

In keeping with this approach, an abstract, occasionally surrealist, and mostly art-focused approach dominates the works presented, where “Identity” deliberately avoids the conflict of narrative, and instead interweaves many of Eric’s personal writings, notebooks and archives. A corner peeked-around when developing the identities and writings in a highly personal and visual setting… all of which, at its heart, defines the Day For Night approach.

“Identity” is a must-read for anyone who is a friend of the label, a client (or potential client), a lover of railway travel and/or urban explorer, reader of poetry or theorist of information architecture, or someone who is passionate about the creative process.

The full visual identity system, logo and sub-brands created by Day For Night, under the catalogue ID “Identity” (Day 008). As a matter of internal reference, this also includes identity marks for Eric ScottNIGHTfonts, Editions La Nuit Amèricaine, Re:Fresh, King FMBluebottles, and Rhythm Factory, plus the accompanying letterhead, envelope, business card, in-ternal communications (fax, invoice, etc.), and a free downloadable desktop utility for composers, the Day For Night BPM Calculator.

NIGHTblog :: Music by Eric Scott (Day 082)

Digital Solution & WordPress CMS Site Design

2013_NIGHTblog-Music By Eric Scott

“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?

We met the challenge of creating an imaginary world of underground train journeys and “tube” subway station platforms. These were wedded to the actor performances (who were filmed on blue-screen), in order to create a virtual journey from “ignorance to awareness” for the website, which is structured around original video PSAs.

041_02
“_Underscore” (Day 041) is the latest installment in orchestral cinematica from composer Eric Scott. Accentuated by patterned, rhythmical cycles, string lines, and Eric’s insistent post-minimalist trademark frenzy, this collection forges an emotional landscape that is rife with tension, in equal parts as it is harmonious with compassion, love and peace. “Underscore” is a lexicon of personal derives and new music for films; a work that is created anticipating need as filmic vantage.
