King FM (Eric Scott/Day For Night). “Soundsystem 0.0.2.” Day 086.cd / download

With “Soundsystem 0.0.2” (Day 086) digital dub-plate fanatic King FM deconstructs the sound work begun by Rhythm Factory and other Day For Night artists in this light and summery outing. Comprising eight bass-heavy, downtempo thumpers, King FM is about an instinct to preserve a chilled-out blend of clicks and cuts, vibing against low, smooth bass and rattling, exotic percussion lines.

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

“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.

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!”

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.

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…

“The White Knight of Roppongi”


Peter Moraites – sketch by Patricia Dalen

Genres: Experimental / Cinematica / Illustration / Fiction / Design / Motion Graphics / Direction / Consultation

Pete Moraites began drawing pictures at the very early age of 0.9 years old, initially favoring the medium of crayon (Crayola 64-pack with built-in sharpener). Showing some promise in this area, he expanded his repertoire to include pencils, pens and even Mr. Sketch scented magic markers (Peter was easily identified at the time by his perennial polychrome mustache). It was around this time that he began to write stories as well.

Peter went to Rutgers University where he continued to write and draw things. Somewhere between the two, people began to pay him for it. Past creative endeavors include:

  • Active participation in the Tomato ten-day workshops in Tokyo (2000), and the five-day workshop in New York City (2001).
  • Developing motion graphics and writing/directing entertainment segments for liins, John Gray, Richard Jeni, Norman Schwarzkopf, and Larry King
  • Writing, directing and editing promotional, documentary and music videos for Ecko Clothing
  • Designing motion interstitials for Nickelodeon™ and writing/illustrating a serialised comic book for Nick Online™
  • Developing opening titles and interstitial designs for PBS’s “New York Adventures” Peter’s cartoon work has also been featured in Backyard Monsters, a touring museum exhibit for children.

During 2001, Peter (a.k.a. Sean Annigans, a.k.a. “The White Knight of Roppongi”) migrated to the Left Coast where he continues to grow as a creator/developer of ideas, imagery, and story, frequently combining his skill and passion for conceptualization, writing, design, direction, editing, and animation. Recently, he has begun making noise as well, with increasingly occasional musical result. His collaboration with Eric Scott, under the moniker Salvador Dalek, remains one of the many unsolved mysteries of this century.

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.”

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.

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.

Rhythm Factory :: Music For Targeted Television Advertising [Day 052]

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 including INVIDI, artist Andy Lakey and ONE Media.

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.

With “Soundsystem 0.0.1” (Day 086) digital dub-plate fanatic King FM infuses electr-dub with a hint of roots reggae in this light and summery outing. Comprising eight bass-heavy, downtempo thumpers, King FM is about an instinct to preserve a chilled-out blend of clicks and cuts, vibing against low, smooth bass and rattling, exotic percussion lines.

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.

Peter Moraites :: Cinemathematica [Day 088]

CD | Download

Peter Moraites is by nature a visual artist, and this shows through in his musical atmospheres. From his background as writer, director, illustrator, photographer and editor, Moraites leans every instrument towards its most percussive qualities; emphasizing hammered guitar strings, pizzicato trombones, tentative but mellifluous piano lines, and the occasionally identifiable 4/4 rhythm pattern in an otherwise odd-sox of tempos and time signatures. The impression is overall beguiling, especially as he has only been creating music for just a year.

The forty-three exploratory works on“Cinemathematica” (Day 088) evolve through gentle melodic shifts and drones amidst colliding rhythm programs and percussion centers, where experimental ambience reigns in a fourth-world kind of way. Tense and anxious, while alternately hypnotic and beautiful, Cinemathematica elaborates upon the young artist’s multimedia and film-scoring potential. Never lacking in gravitas, these abbreviated compositions – many under two minutes – flow together or signal an editorial sea-change.

Rhythm Factory :: On the Trail of the Latin House Lover [Day 042]

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 upon the lush trance-drone of “The Acid Room“…

The fanciful and upbeat Northern-pop of “Deaf In Ishen” sets the stage, though the humble introductions are soon over, replaced by the progressive house of “Headboard” and “Okapi,” and flanked by the alternately eclectic IDM of “Lap Dog Of Luxury” and “14 Months Peach,” the junglism of “Bornes” and the drillier “Dark Pork,” and the light-hearted disco-distractions of “Acid Skiffle” and “Mondays Alive“… Train music for your next holidays abroad.

Post-Situationist propaganda films covers the walls of NIGHTlinkRail, hammering on about the overthrow of cultural leadership and the entertainment channels that fuel “big news.”

Post-revolution theories abound; albeit tongue-in-cheek, while “Big ideas” cross pollinate with more Situationism to create a collection that is naturally an ongoing work-in-progress.

Rhythm Factory :: The Case of the Chiming Clock [Day 034]

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 Image Bank,” “Deep Dog,” “Cosey Inner Fanni”) and progressive house (“Sawtunthe,” “Filmy”).

Rhythm Factory :: Helix [Day 032]

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; an elementary reader for young spellers, covering basic moral ideology and concepts – or equivalently the small charge before the main detonation – one’s listening emphasis may shift during this tour around the basic elements of Rhythm Factory’s own liturgical “Book Of Hours” – another primer in its own right.

Rhythm Factory :: Push [Day 022]

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 C90 cassettes’ worth of dictaphone-demos), and refines the cream of the crème here into a hybrid IDM/house symphony.

Featuring chiming lead lines and elements of anthemic techno (“Panic,” “Pearl”), Push fuses strains of world-indie (“Prawn,” “Psalm”) – its 16 tracks are an upbeat, while introspective, new offering.

Rhythm Factory :: All Mine! [Day 014]

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 mellifluous ambience, this release features two instrumental mixes of the track, plus “Lisa’s House.”
