2011_0219 : Dirty Guitar Jam

2008_0914 : Criphop

More mellotrons sing their downtempo birdsong, over a breakbeat-blue-sky groove… Another wistful little piece of trip-hop composed on a seasonable autumn afternoon…

2008_0911 : Pissnitz

I remem­ber say­ing good­bye to the house in one last visit, where the idea was to carry all I could before they demol­ished it. I arrived at the new condo early in the day, before my par­ents, and I remem­ber being with a girl. She was the key holder to the build­ing, and let me […]

2008_0909 : Hindleybrady

…My father told me to watch closely. A woman on the sec­ond floor walked out onto her bal­cony and Father pushed a but­ton and she was sud­denly squashed onto her rail­ing, slumped over, trapped by this enor­mous black thing. It was a device attached to the build­ing on the third floor, and resem­bled a 10-foot […]

2008_0909 : Curtailed

Fragments of playfully jazzy hip-hop, colliding with a descending, feel-good bass line… Something I wrote quickly, while the sun disappeared behind the clouds that afternoon…

2008_0907 : Puss

A work in progress which confirmed my interest in writing some deeper, heavier, repetitively “circling” motifs, which could be given a later use in urgent espionage drama. “…Agent Reese flies propulsively through the air, catapulting past dozens of sniper rifles as he zones in upon his target, a thin, waif-like young thing who cuddles her […]

2006_0527 : Siennapods (Mix 1)

Another Krautrock influenced piece, replete with trippy Tony Levin stick-slapping effect… The chugging rhythm guitar makes it more proggy than I’d originally anticipated and took it in another direction… Buy / Download SIENNAPODS – $0.99  

1994_0624 : Clair De Lunatic

(1994) Composer : Eric Scott This work emerged from the straightforward development of a musical theme, voiced through six MIDI electronic keyboards: the six voices all speak in unison before branching off into their separate rhythms and melodies– finally reuniting on a single-chord recapitulation of the six-chord sequence. The descending “chain of suspensions” contained in […]

1994_0617 : Music From 3 Hats (in F)

(1988) Composer : Eric Scott This, my first work of process music, was a piece in which a set of chance operations determined the structure of the musical phrase, including the arrangement of the instruments to be used. The decisions made ultimately governed the tempo of the final piece. The only fixed criteria were that […]

1992_1024 : Detained (in Dm, 8 bpm Mix)

(1988) Composer : Eric Scott A radically slowed-down version of the track (Detained) which appeared on my first release (“3 Mains”, Day 001), and in which the concept of pedal sustain and delay is explored by multiple pianos over the course of 16 minutes, instead of 3. The work was inspired, in equal parts, by […]

1991_0323 : M.L.B.W.

With its crying piano, this was to be a Singing-Fish type of instrumental; the wacky side to the album that would differentiate it from the “new age” market which I despised so much. m.l.b.w. stands for “my little Belgian wolf,” and has been the cause of much futile guessing on the part of my listeners. […]

1990_1212 : Held (Cynthia Netherland’s Theme)

Another favorite piece from the 3 Mains project. I wrote it much later in the year 1990, as I was winding up the album and was finding that I could no longer escape piano music. It was also a reaction to the Suzanne Vega song Fifty Fifty Chance. Marie was a fan of hers, and […]
