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.

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.

Luc Ferrari Remix "Hörspiel"

Chronopolis Dub Remix by Eric Scott / Download
Hommage à Luc Ferrari - Chronopolis D•U•B by Eric Scott (Day For Night)

Hommage à Luc Ferrari – Chronopolis D•U•B by Eric Scott (Day For Night)

The setting of this work takes the listener, over seventeen minutes, along a journey – from the factory (the birthplace) to the stage (youth – through theatre, spectacle and illusion) via the countryside (peace, retirement) and concluding in a sanctuary. This HORSPIEL indirectly references the human condition, from birth to death. …HORSPIEL is a tribute as well to the late composer Luc Ferrari, who passed away in 2005 and who is greatly missed by all those who knew and loved his work.

A guide to the original Luc Ferrari sounds used in the piece are available from this link:

Extract From Composer’s Notes by Eric Scott

…Ferrari introduces his Tautologie; whereby a machinist’s saw signals a Caesarean birth as the “Usine” groove smashes in, punctuated by sharp attacks and pulsations, and presaging the Shakespearean (Stratford) montage of violent battle, with sword hits and exclamatory grunts. Le petit train (Strauss) then takes us out… and into an atmospheric segment, leading us to an adaptation of an original Salvador Dalek work – “Doop” – remixed from the original replacing all original percussion with recordings of Luc’s… The peacock screech, intended to represent the danger element in the work…

…The ambient textures from Chronopolis : Sons Tendus Électroniques forming a pulsating audio bed beneath this piece which integrates breakbeats and fretless bass. Nearing the fourteen-minute mark, more of those damned peacocks, and the bells of St. Antoine bid their farewell to us as our train leads us away once again, revealing the organ sounds from Chopin : Ambiance Église Orgue et Marteau… and carry us away again through time …And we are left with the image of receding sound of footsteps in the monastery…

Eric Scott (Day For Night). “The Drowning Fish” Day 033.cd / download

Eric Scott (Day For Night). “The Drowning Fish” Day 033.cd / download

“The Drowning Fish” (Day 033) is a collection of contemplative-yet-upbeat pieces for electric guitar, with a shift of emphasis upon arrangements that “could be reproducible live”…This is not to suggest that Eric Scott has any performance dates planned for the near future; the composer/producer prefers the studio environment above all else.

“I really do love to play live. But there’s a wiser instinct that reminds me that I just need to keep away from activities that have that laborious feeling, especially repetitive scheudules of any sort. From day to day, my attention is constantly moving, I’m restless and so I reinvent music every day. I’m just not into the side of things that requires that performer’s discipline. In many ways, it’s at the heart of why I do so many of the activities I pursue today.”

John Foxx & The Maths Remix “Shatterproof”

John Foxx And The Maths "Shatterproof (Broken Mix)" - Remix by Salvador Dalek (Eric Scott / Day For Night)

John Foxx And The Maths “Shatterproof (Broken Mix)” – Remix by Salvador Dalek (Eric Scott / Day For Night)

John Foxx & The Maths’ “Shatterproof” gets a “Broken” treatment here from Salvador Dalek’s Eric Scott – with a ghostly hint of Cabaret Voltaire, Pig Bag and Meat Beat Manifesto sprinkled into the post-industrial soup… Bigger beats and an aggressive bassline reminiscent of 80s Trevor Horn production… Not for the nostalgophobic, to say the least!

Producing under the pseudonym Rhythm Factory, Eric Scott remixes Martin Solveig’s “Hello” (featuring vocals by Dragonette) into the “Goodbye Remix”

Heavy-but-fluid beats coupled with distorted sequencer lines, all adding up to a departure from the familiar pop original, and into progressive house territory.

With “Soundsystem 0.0.2” (Day 086) digital dub-plate fanatic King FM deconstructs the sound work begun by Rhythm Factory and other Day For Night artists in this light and summery outing. Comprising eight bass-heavy, downtempo thumpers, King FM is about an instinct to preserve a chilled-out blend of clicks and cuts, vibing against low, smooth bass and rattling, exotic percussion lines.
