Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Loscil is the / music project of Scott Morgan, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The name Loscil is taken from the “looping oscillator” function (loscil) in Csound. Scott Morgan is also the drummer for the Vancouver indie band Destroyer.

A self-released album titled A New Demonstration of Thermodynamic Tendencies caught the attention of experimental music label Kranky who signed Morgan on to release his first album Triple Point in 2001. Triple Point features six tracks off his first independent release as well as four new tracks.

Loscil followed up the release with Submers, an aquatic-themed album. Each track on the album is named after a submarine. The last track on the album was produced in honour of the people who died on the Russian submarine K-141 Kursk.

His 2004 album First Narrows (a reference to the official name of the Vancouver bridge also known as Lions’ Gate Bridge) marked the incorporation of improvised performances by a number of guest musicians: Nyla Raney, cello; Tim Loewen, guitar; and Jason Zumpano, rhodes piano. Consequently, the songs were more organic and looser in nature than his previous work which he performed alone. Eight of his songs were featured on the film score of the 2004 documentary ScaredSacred by award-winning documentary filmmaker Velcrow Ripper.

Stases is an album made up of background drones from his other albums. It was released for free on the website for the One record label. The theme of his fourth album, released in 2006, continues the conceptual ascent each album has taken, from the subsurface geological depths (Triple Point) and watery depths (Submers) to the surface (First Narrows) and the sky (Plume).

    If you haven't heard 'for greta' prepare for a listening experience you won't forget.. I personally could't think of a better way to raise money for a child diagnosed with cancer. If you are reading this, you really need to go and purchase it immediately. I assure you, there will be nothing even closely resembling regret.. Absolute bliss

    I said "invented ambient as it is today," all I meant was to say that a lot of ambient artists these days tend to take from his work. On another topic, I was just done with your mom last night and she was all like "if that sex had been a song, it would have been the best ambient track I've ever experienced... and yes I'm including Aphex Twin" but instead of informing her that Aphex Twin isn't ambient I told her "bitch that was way too loud and rhythmic to be anything close to ambient"

    Eno didn't even "invent" ambient anyway.

    i slowed down some harsh noise the other night, it sounded like greg wallace getting a hard-on for a pear tarte tatin.

    Actually if you were to slow down harsh noise it would probably still be harsh noise
