Presently hibernating, the Von Trapps is a one-off project created by producer / arranger / keyboardist Eric Scott with singer / lyricist Doug Green. Sporadic recordings made in the early 1990s foreshadowed ample breakbeat loops, forsaking “electronic drum” sounds for another ten years…

“The White Knight of Roppongi”


Peter Moraites – sketch by Patricia Dalen

Genres: Experimental / Cinematica / Illustration / Fiction / Design / Motion Graphics / Direction / Consultation

Pete Moraites began drawing pictures at the very early age of 0.9 years old, initially favoring the medium of crayon (Crayola 64-pack with built-in sharpener). Showing some promise in this area, he expanded his repertoire to include pencils, pens and even Mr. Sketch scented magic markers (Peter was easily identified at the time by his perennial polychrome mustache). It was around this time that he began to write stories as well.

Peter went to Rutgers University where he continued to write and draw things. Somewhere between the two, people began to pay him for it. Past creative endeavors include:

  • Active participation in the Tomato ten-day workshops in Tokyo (2000), and the five-day workshop in New York City (2001).
  • Developing motion graphics and writing/directing entertainment segments for liins, John Gray, Richard Jeni, Norman Schwarzkopf, and Larry King
  • Writing, directing and editing promotional, documentary and music videos for Ecko Clothing
  • Designing motion interstitials for Nickelodeon™ and writing/illustrating a serialised comic book for Nick Online™
  • Developing opening titles and interstitial designs for PBS’s “New York Adventures” Peter’s cartoon work has also been featured in Backyard Monsters, a touring museum exhibit for children.

During 2001, Peter (a.k.a. Sean Annigans, a.k.a. “The White Knight of Roppongi”) migrated to the Left Coast where he continues to grow as a creator/developer of ideas, imagery, and story, frequently combining his skill and passion for conceptualization, writing, design, direction, editing, and animation. Recently, he has begun making noise as well, with increasingly occasional musical result. His collaboration with Eric Scott, under the moniker Salvador Dalek, remains one of the many unsolved mysteries of this century.

Salvador Dalek “Birth.” Day 035. by Salvador Dalek

“Birth” (Day 035) is the nascent studio outing of ambient and progressive cinematica artists Salvador Dalek. Not to be confused with its wiser, elder sibling Julie Android, Salvador Dalek operates in a sampladelic and definitionless universe.

Born June 2001 as a live remix identity of Eric Scott and Pete Moraites, this moniker is the one they have used since their first association, through the collaborative projects they have created following Tomato Workshops NYC, where they first chose recording and remixing as an outlet away from other professional activities in the fields of multimedia.

Unlike anything else found in this catalogue, “Found 1: A Stone” (Day 028) takes the listener along a naturally evolving, atmospheric journey, leading to unknown sonic realms… a series of underground railway stations, back alleys, cloisters, and disused quarries… Found merges raw sound recordings into an ambient electronic musical score.

Eric Scott “My Nature” Download

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…

“Music For Targeted Television Advertising” (Day 052) shows Rhythm Factory – composer/producer Eric Scott – releasing an eclectic, electronic soundtracks compilation to coincide with the latest video scores.

Despite the Eno-esque references made by its ironic title, this 2005 collection is composed of professionally-commissioned soundtracks, representing Eric Scott’s underscores and output for commercial clients including INVIDI, artist Andy Lakey and ONE Media.

Rhythm Factory (Eric Scott/Day For Night). “Primer.” Day 034.cd / download

With “Primer” (Day 034)Rhythm Factory (producer/composer Eric Scott) replaces a darker outer coat of ambient IDM electronica, with a lighter, latex micropercussion as its dominant texture. Presenting a set of instrumental explorations: “Bianca,” “Microhomemusic,” “Auntie Nell’s Cash Skeleton” and “Quillocet” define the edges of the stage.

Depending upon one’s interpretation of the word primer; an elementary reader for young spellers, covering basic moral ideology and concepts – or equivalently the small charge before the main detonation – one’s listening emphasis may shift during this tour around the basic elements of Rhythm Factory’s own liturgical “Book Of Hours” – another primer in its own right.
