Salvador Dalek “Spelling Test Video Party"

DVD Launch Event

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:

Download MP3 Commentary by Peter Moraites and Eric Scott (Salvador Dalek)

An excerpt from Pete Moraites.com: “This piece began with my long time fascination with sign language and led me to begin learning ASL.

“The intention was to make poetry with hands, by exploring the ideas of hypnotic poetry or poetic hypnosis, and by using the hands as fluid dancing forms… in those bits the poetry of hands resembles ASL like ee cummings poetry resembles a dictionary… they use the same forms and structures.”

Take a journey with suspended expectations and definitions.

Vistas, both new and familiar, take on magical properties. Cosmic forces play their game of balance on a black and white game grid. A magician’s music reveals older worlds within the walls of the labyrinth. Giant roadside faith magnet shatters, releasing dynamic expressions of energetic creation.

This is how we see the world in a new light.

Tomato Workshops NYC :: June 2001

Art Workshop Event
John Warwicker (Tomato) at the NYC Tomato workshops

John Warwicker (Tomato) at the NYC Tomato workshops

“Record the world in front of you
and in the edges of what you
cannot or will not see.” – Eric Scott

Excerpt from the brief for Tomato‘s workshops:

The workshops are a way of immersing yourself suddenly and intensely into the process and conversation that goes on within tomato. Several members of tomato are there to initiate the conversation, but the workshop really happens through the interaction of everyone there. A wide range of people from around the world with diverse backgrounds come together to create work. You not only learn a great deal from everyone around you but everyone learns from you as well. They are about creativity, art, process, life, philosophy, design, and the interconnectedness of all of these things. But of course I now have to ask if these things ever were separate from each other anyway? (more) (Courtesy of TomatoWorkshops.com)

Eric Scott (Day For Night) “June, 2001 in New York City was the setting of the Tomato Workshops where I met Peter Moraites, and formed an indelible bond and friendship. Much can be said about the 5 days spent at a workshop where I arrived with no concrete expectations, and left with a head full of dreams. John Warwicker, Graham Wood and Steve Baker (of Tomato) had created a studio setting that felt (for me) like a week-long break from routine, where the client work schedule got left behind in California, and I could instead inhabit this “commune-like” environment for creativity, where sleeping and eating came second to working and making things in a creatively charged space.”

Eric Scott “Polite” from Tomato Workshops NY, 2001 from Day For Night.

Produced for Day 1 of the Tomato Workshops NYC, June 2001.
An exercise created from my room at Hotel 17, Greenwich Village at 11:30 pm on a very rainy night in New York City. It was made using Flash and Macromedia SoundEdit; using a digital camera, handheld audio recorder and limited resources (certainly no access to internet, c’mon — it was June 2001 and I was alone in a dingy little hotel)… 🙂
