2013_0511 : Nosedive Into The Future (Mix 2)

2013_0511 : Nosedive Into The Future (Mix 2)

An ambient ethereal studio collaboration touted as Cowboy Joe vs. Julie Android which produced some dark and elegaic drums, bass and piano. I created the track in one afternoon, while pursuing an experiment to apply some ambient shimmers to some guitar and piano, and I wanted a track to play with. The guitar was the […]

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_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…

1994_0612 : Musical Anamorphosis No. 1 (in Am)

(1991) Composer : Eric Scott This piece was derived from my work “Parc de Sceaux” (which appears on day 031 “50 Minutes From Paris”). Arranged here for six pianos, the piece was also lengthened from the original 2:30 to a record 20:30 (scaling the tempo down to approximately 8 beats per minute). “Musical Anamorphosis” refers […]

1993_0818 : Un Moment, S.V.P.

I’ve always heard a high tenor voice singing a melodic lead over the top of this (perhaps in the style that Belgian composer Wim Mertens does so well)… It’s always crossed (a bit too dangerously) into Supertramp-kind of territory, with the easy transitions between major and minor 7ths in a few of the chord changes. […]

1992_1207 : Trocadèro No. 2

“Trocadero” (1 & 2) are a little bit of me, where Erik Satie and Vini Reilly (Durutti Column) might intersect. I recall composing this as a bedroom-musician and it was all about the loss of love at a time when something big was about to happen and something else big had just recently happened. It […]

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 […]

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 […]
