Bio :: Eric Scott

BIO Eric Scott is a composer, producer, artist, writer, DJ and sound designer from Santa Monica, California. He brings over 25 years’ consultative experience as principal and founder of Day For Night, a digital creative studio for art, design, music and video.

Coming from a background in the advertising production industry where he established himself as a sound designer and audio engineer, Eric broke out to work independently in 1991. A boutique independent music label, Day For Night boasts original catalogue of electronic, abstract, dream pop and avant-garde-jazz-classical music releases. Solo recordings (under an absurdistly lengthy variety of pseudonyms, based more upon genre than personnel) include 3 Mains (1991), The Performing Man (1993), Paris – A Musical Overpass (1995), Found1 – A Stone (2006), The Inner Cinema (2007) and Junction – Another Train Leaving (2007).

In 2011 alone, Eric has remixed a broad variety of artists in diverse styles, from Euro-Israeli pop chanteuse Keren Ann, John Foxx, David Lynch, Martin Solveig and musique concrète composer Luc Ferrari.

In 1998, Eric established Day For Night Digital Creative Studio, mixing in his creative strengths through professional consultative services, and comprehensive design solutions. His studio activities encompass, full-time, his lifelong passion for creativity in communication and the visual arts as well as music.

Today, Day For Night provides bespoke strategic solutions, consultation and development in web properties and viral multimedia, branding and identity design, and original music production and underscore for film.

Eric Scott & The Everyday :: Vigilant [Day 046]

CD | Download

“Vigilant” (Day 046) presents eleven tracks by Eric Scott, leading with the Britpop-tinged “My Nature”, and merging smoky trip hop, brooding melodies and dark keyboard layers, with the occasional upbeat diversion.

Cowboy Joe vs Julie Android :: Fall Ahead [Day 076]

CD | Download

Eric Scott & The Everyday :: A Priori [Day 043]

CD | Download

“A Priori” (Day 043) collects ten tracks by Eric Scott, merging smoky trip hop, brooding melodies and dark keyboard layers, with the occasional upbeat diversion. “I wrote much of this in the early half of 1997. At that time, I was experiencing some turmoil, and documented almost everything in audio journals, and in the form of my guitar playing, which became very diligent, and very structured all of a sudden.

“Then, the project went on hold, as I began to deal with many of the feelings that came up during the writing process. The feelings were so intense that I never revisited the songs for almost ten years. It was like a magnet, finding so much power within this creative block, and so I considered it a great honor to finish and record all ten tracks!”

Eric Scott :: _Underscore [Day 041]

CD | Download

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.

Eric Scott & The Everyday :: Tensmith [Day 036]

CD | Download

A collection of acoustic demos, recorded between July 2009 and December 2010, and encompassing the entire songwriting catalogue by Eric Scott, for Day For Night/Editions La Nuit Américaine.

Eric: “In a way, this project represents a kind of re-invention; where the freedom of hearing oneself re-interpreted, as many as 20 years later, through an acoustic demo, frees one of the trappings of fashion, style, temperament, and leaves only the bare bones of a rather positive songwriting legacy in place. It was made with the intention of leaving an inspirational footprint, and I think it wholly succeeds.”

Eric Scott & The Everyday :: 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.”

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.

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

Luc Ferrari Remix “Hörspiel” [Day 082]

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…

John Foxx & The Maths’ “Shatterproof” gets a “Broken” treatment here from Salvador Dalek’s Eric Scott – with hints 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!

The Von Trapps

Genres: Indie / Electro / Breakbeat Techno / Vocal

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…

Bluebottles :: Bluebottles [Day 087]

CD | Download

“Bluebottles” (Day 087) merges faux-nostalgia, breakfast-jazz and anemic (I think he means ‘anthemic’ – Ed.) 1930’s dance-band jingleism, to create a parody of a much maligned genre. Musical director Eric Scott proclaims “Jazz is part of much that is Day For Night… but that’s a relative statement.

Bluebottles - aka Eric Scott of Day For Night

“Improvisation is at the root of almost all of my own composition. I’m by no means a formalist. There are moments when I put on someone else’s definition of jazz, and frankly, that can be absolute murder to sit through. So somewhere toeing that line, there lives a peculiar but friendly hybrid of big-band, comedy-fusion and acid-breakfast jazz. That’s what Bluebottles is about; getting out a miniature Union Jack, putting on a carnation, doing that WW1-period crossword and spreading your legs to some light buffoonery over your eggs benedict and clotted cream. You won’t be disappointed.”

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…

Künstfabriken :: Ja Ja Nein [Day 067]

CD | Download

Künstfabriken – inspired by the kosmische rumblings of 1970s Düsseldorf – offers up “Ja Ja Nein” (Day 072), which finds composer / producer / recording artist Eric Scott paying hommage to the buzzing Krautrock forefathers, in a prog-like public freak-out.

Turning out a motorik, noodledelic grunge, and driving hard from the recesses of a controlled headspace, Künstfabriken takes on an split garage-driven approach (“Come Beat!” and “Bump” – pure thrash!) while “Siennapods” and “Jarresuite” get glam-funky to a break-step that can only seen as getting a little weirdy-beardy. Not exactly a music for the wee hours, just a bit of fun.

Salvador Dalek :: Birth [Day 035]

CD | Download

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 Peter 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.
