CD | Download “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 […]
An electronic musical trio led by studio owner Jupiter Jenkins, releasing their recordings as “library music” income to further fund their audio research. Vini Jackson (bass, drums, electronics, pedals) and ‘special guest artist’ keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Peter Sibley (Fuzzknobs, Künstfabriken) joins notably for the band’s releases after 1994.
Through the 1990’s, Rhythm Factory worked through most electronic sub-genres, from acid house, IDM, industrial, techno, trance, big beat, progressive house, jungle-drum and bass and ambient.
Casting aside more traditional pop-star aspirations in favor of the more dignified calm (Seriously? – Ed.) of the dance and electronic charts, this is part of a carefully-crafted “wise move” according to Jupiter, non-defensively and fully on-target with the master plan laid with the original band blueprint.

CD / Download Rhythm Factory “Saves The Day” (Day 044) draws further from ambient, jungle and progressive house, as composer / producer Eric Scott unveils a series of electronica miniatures.
CD | Download “On the Trail of the Latin House Lover” (Day 042) shows Rhythm Factory exploring – while getting lost in a pre-Autumnal – new musical territory. Composer/producer Eric Scott is at his most spatial here, opening with a meditational trilogy: the beatless “AESM (Light Remix),” melding into the percussive ambient mind-field of “The Stenotelegrapher” and resolving […]
Brand identity for “Wildass” – a creative consortium based in Venice, CA. The use of personal quotes and affirmations from the creative team forms the basis of the “subliminals” which flicker through the animation sequence. Art direction by Eric Scott (Day For Night).

CD / Download Rhythm Factory “The Case of the Chiming Clock” (Day 042) lifts the shroud, and reduces the fictitious, mystery-solving electronics trio to a solo artist. Producer and composer Eric Scott draws influence from the ambient (“Drumbience Modulator”), drum’n’bass (“Snake Charmer,” “Swing Kids Fly Off”, “®-018”) and breakbeat (“Gamma”) as much as straightforward techno (“Burst […]
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; […]

CD | Download “Suck” (Day 024) evolved quickly – beyond the simple companion EP to “Push” it was intended to be – into a proper album on its own. Rhythm Factory’s ten new tracks are fueled by the darker Drum’n’Basscounterpanes of “Zikcfukc (Livin Large),” “Zaouk (Petropolis),” and “Zuq (Itch To Scratch)”… Meanwhile, anthemic basslines and guitars […]
CD | Download “Push” (Day 022) shows Rhythm Factory as a shadow of its former self, in this long-awaited reinvention, ditching its identity as protagonist of “journey musics,” and immersing itself deeper into a progressive, dreamhouse bath. Composer/ producer Eric Scott returns to the studio after a 4-year hiatus (…after singing mostly the equivalent of 95 separate […]
CD | Download “All Mine” (Day 014) – the proposed single from Rhythm Factory‘s “Play Pop!” – was mislaid as official catalogue product, while mastering decisions held up the latter title’s release in 1992. The single was shelved, and has only just recently seen the light of the millennium. Powered by deeply insistent, resonant grooves and […]
CD | Download In the late 1980s, and on into the year 1990, Rhythm Factory remixed a total of 11 tracks by Eric Scott, as “Play House!” (Day 012). These tracks signaled, for Eric, a shift away from indie-pop songwriting, pushing him further into the realm of the underground club mix. Vocal takes originally recorded were stripped […]
CD | Download Rhythm Factory’s 1991 “In The Acid” (Day 004) brings Middle-Eastern modalities into a meeting with abrasive samples and stabs, to create two pieces of a cinematic, albeit coarser, exotic flavor. Eric Scott: “These formed at a time when my interest in Belgian New Beat and Hardfloor aligned with release of the first […]
CD | Download Rhythm Factory’s “Technopolitan” (Day 002) was realized in 1991 as a solo remix endeavor for producer/composer Eric Scott, in which he recontextualises 15 of his favorite self-penned indie pop tracks. Fueled in equal parts by obsessions with Belgian New Beat, Electronic Body Music and Acid House, the mix becomes a single work of […]
Art Direction Eric Scott, Art & Musical Director for Day For Night: “With instrumental, and especially textural electronic music, the primary relevance of music is clearest – namely, that music doesn’t really mean anything – it doesn’t need all sorts of lyrics and words and gimmicks in order to be successful.” Therefore, it feels appropriate that […]
