Eric Scott / Day For Night – composer/producer, designer, artist, writer, DJ and sound designer

Eric Scott is a composer/producer, artist, writer, DJ and sound designer from Santa Monica, California. He brings 20 years of consultative experience as principal and founder of Day For Night, a creative studio for multimedia, music and design. Coming from a background in the advertising production industry where he established himself as a recordist, sound designer and audio engineer, he created Day For Night in 1991 as a boutique independent music label with an original catalogue of electronic, abstract, pop and avant-garde-jazz-classical music releases of his own. 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).

Eric has also worked under the names Rhythm Factory, Bluebottles, Found, Mr. No-Logo, Künstfabriken, King FM and as one half of the duo Salvador Dalek, all released on auteur label Day For Night. 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 Multimedia, adding a plethora of creative services in comprehensive design solutions and expanding his studio activities full-time to incorporate his lifetime passion for creativity in communication and the visual arts as well as music. Today, Day For Night Multimedia 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. His client list includes, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, musician-artist Herb Alpert (as well as the Herb Alpert Foundation), Disney Online / Buena Vista Internet Group, Touchstone Television, actor-producer Michael Chiklis, sound artist Scanner (Robin Rimbaud), The Epilepsy Foundation of America, University of California Irvine, contemporary visual artist Andrew Lakey, INVIDI Technologies, Two Chefs On A Roll, the Crestone Group Baking Companies, the Swim~ label and many others.
