Periodically […]
Day 099 ‘The Railway Chest” is something of an anomaly in the Day For Night catalogue.

Hand crafted in intricate detail, this ameublement has been modeled after an antique railway trainspotter’s chest.

Let’s face it, I’m not really a #nofilters kind of guy; I’ve always needed […]
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 […]

The inner musical soup of Eric Scott begins as a swirling repetitive haze of musical, nearly ‘hauntological’ melodies at times.
