Loscil will be presenting at L.E.V. expanded audio-visual works drawing from the language previously explored for recent albums Sea Island and Monument Builders. Using a collage of old and new visual techniques and imagery blending geometric abstraction with architecture, nature and fractured light, Loscil will project his own custom, synchronized visuals alongside a combination of reworked, improvised and newly composed music.
Scott Morgan is a composer, sound designer and multimedia artist living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Morgan’s dual background in Vancouver’s independent music scene and academic composition studies at Simon Fraser University culminated in the creation of his Loscil project in the late 1990’s.
With Loscil, Morgan explores the marriage of electronic and acoustic instrumentation to create “…stark landscapes that are evocative, earthly, anything but abstract, and so much more than merely ‘ambient’.” (The Quietus, UK). Morgan has predominantly released music through Portland’s Kranky label including his 7th full length, 2014’s Sea Island. He has composed for film, dance and video games and has toured his music worldwide including at esteemed festivals such as Mutek, Decibel and Big Ears.
