We met the challenge of creating an imaginary world of underground train journeys and “tube” subway station platforms. These were wedded to the actor performances (who were filmed on blue-screen), in order to create a virtual journey from “ignorance to awareness” for the website, which is structured around original video PSAs.

Andy Lakey “Portraits”

Brand Experience, Custom Site Design & Development

Artist Andy Lakey's "Portraits" (aka "Silhouettes and Shadows") mini-site - Art Direction and Design by Eric Scott (Day For Night)

Artist Andy Lakey’s “Portraits” (aka “Silhouettes and Shadows”) mini-site – Art Direction and Design by Eric Scott (Day For Night)

Silhouettes & Shadows is an ongoing experimental project of Andrew Lakey portraits, that examines the liminal boundaries of likeness using a minimum of subject information to generate the threshold of stimulus of sufficient intensity to produce a similarity. The process of capturing the mere tracing of a shadow cast by a profile, or the simple outline of a body part, such as a hand or a torso or a foot, as a methodology to eliminate extraneous detail, becomes a portal into a new dimension of artifact. The question is “How much can be removed before likeness is lost or new likeness is revealed?”

The Silhouettes & Shadows collection is a continuum of work that will be shown to the public in upcoming exhibitions and at select venues where the artist is making a public demonstration of the process.

Salvador Dalek “Spelling Test Video Party"

DVD Launch Event

The evening of Saturday, May 20, 2006 marked the date for the Peter Moraites “Spelling Test” video album Launch Party, at Ocean Front Gallery, along the legendary henna-tatooed, roller-blading boardwalk in Venice, CA. Many thanks are due all-around to the friends who so kindly attended and contributed to the evening’s success.

After sundown, the courtyard space at 801 Ocean Front Walk rapidly became a buzzing outdoor lounge, complete with wine and appetizers, and illuminated by a pair of projection walls (one outdoor, the other inside the gallery) – and featuring a continual and mesmerising litany of classic music videos and intoxicating visuals throughout the night.

Inside the main gallery space, a hushed audience was treated to a soulful, pop acoustic set by Canadian artist Marianne Baker, after which came the anticipated, and warmly received screening of the video album/DVD “Spelling Test,” which comprises nine original Pete Moraites music/art videos, with soundtracks by Moraites (“Simpletongue”, “Twitterpation”, “Smokercraft”) and Salvador Dalek (Day For Night’s Eric Scott, remixing and collaborating with Moraites). The presentation was transformed by Moraites’ own closing speech; a poignant thanks to his closest collaborators – an inspirational hommage to the value of encouragement and the creative workshop process.

Eleven o’clock heralded the premiere live performance of Salvador Dalek (Eric Scott on laptop and mixing desk, with Pete Moraites providing visuals and live VJ-accompaniment throughout the set) – unleashing a storming set of progressive house, trance, and drum’n’bass remixes from the Day For Night back catalogue, spanning a breakneck-56-song live remix (in under an hour’s time) and highlighted by a glowing flute performance from soloist Kelly Wilson, during “Twitterpation” – another key highlight of the evening. Our ears are still ringing, and all in a good way.

The Salvador Dalek remix CD “Beat The Time (Day 055)” will be released soon, featuring highlights from this live set, plus a fully-remixed podcast of the set to also follow soon… Check back at this link for details very soon:

Found2 :: A Stone [Day 028]

CD | Download

Unlike anything else found in this catalogue, “Found2: A Stone” (Day 028) takes the listener along a naturally evolving, atmospheric journey, leading to unknown sonic realms… a series of underground railway stations, back alleys, cloisters, and disused quarries… Found merges raw sound recordings into an ambient electronic musical score.

Found1 :: Listen: A Multi-User Soundspace” [Day 018]

CD | Download

“Listen” (Day 018) is the first installment of musique concrète of the Found series. Originating as a library of rejected snips from the multimedia audio design process, these ten themed pieces (Flutters, Bodily Noises, Voices, Percussive Rhythms, etc.) also form the basis for much of the audio design in Day For Night’s commissioned work, and installations by Found.

The multi-user soundspace at NIGHTlinkRail Station 018, comprises ten reactive environments and sound toys, admitting one or more users and allowing each to respond to a 360° space and interact with experimental and unusual audiovisual sensors and lighting. This installation opens early 2004.

Andy Lakey “Silhouettes & Shadows” Intro from Day For Night.

In 2004, artist Andy Lakey began to refine a collection of extraordinary work – Silhouettes & Shadows (“The Portraits”) – exploring a remarkable visual world revealed from the human form. Eric Scott (Day For Night) animated the opening site montage from paintings and stills, along with creating the custom underscore.

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 a non-narrative presentation format needed to be developed for Day For Night, to allow for individual die-cut panels, which could be viewed in any particular sequence within a given set of 10, just like random-shuffle programming on a CD player… Let’s face it, by 1991, there was no longer any real pacing of booklet content to digital audio listening.

In late 1991, Eric Scott – a disenfranchised young recording engineer and studio boffin – accepted a night-time design position with a local graphic design production house. In the mind of teaching himself vitally-needed Aldus Freehand skills, and experimenting with design and layout ideas, Eric worked diligently for a year, building out an as-yet non-existent art direction portfolio, between the hours of 10PM and 3AM every morning, before locking up the studio during the final shift of the night.

Eric’s earliest projects were to evolve into cover designs for his emerging Day For Night label. “I knew I had to do my own designs. There was simply no way I was going to trust anyone else to design the packaging for music I was ultimately responsible for, and had slaved so hard to produce. I knew – from the moment I’d figured out what it was about truly great graphic design that I was so passionate about – that I had to rise to this new challenge, and learn the skills necessary to produce my own visuals. They were, after all, and in my own mind, married to the music.”

By this time, Day For Night was already set for its first six releases, (Day 001 through Day 006) – but as yet, had no album art or visual identity. The first attempts to focus in a single direction were chaotic – and thus began a passionate phase of investigation and research into the history of graphic design, and relevance for the aspiring young art director, whohad not attended art school, and lacked a proper design education. A process which went on for the next seven years, during which Eric had to align with a relevant methodology for representing visual ideas as album cover artin the digital age.

Although CD covers managed to preserve the square format of vinyl records, he still claims often to be put off by some design formats found in many artist’s CDs – the eco-friendly DigiPak® foldover design (was it merely a statement of disposability?) or just plain awkward (jewel case fold-outs that sequentially unfolded panels, attempting to reveal information in ways contrary to the message of the music).

Eric continues: “Album design had come to feel empty. If you really want to question the meaning – such as, ‘What am I meant to read into this, and in what order?’ then the pop CD packaging I saw around me was still attempting to guide reading in a linear manner, that did not relate to the non-linearity of the music. Ultimately, the electronica I was creating was a statement away from the more traditional “narrative” stance enforced by the previous school of design thinking, where elaborate, and often expensive design conceits – many of which were a bit too self-important – seemed almost as vacuous as dinosaur rock.

“Ultimately, I’m a record-sleeve junkie. I grew up with sleeves and album art of the 70s and 80s, and slowly learned that, in the hands of capable designer, the better the art, the more memorable the album. There’s actually a great correlation I’ve found between the intuition I use when I browse music in shops, and the graphic tastes of the designers who do sleeves for the artists I like. For the art director or designer, great album design means that you should really tap into the minds of the kinds of fans who would buy such a record. There’s really an awful lot more to talk about there.”
