Loscil 'Submers' 2xLP

Loscil 'Submers' 2xLP

Available on vinyl for the first time, Scott Morgan's second Loscil full-length, Submers , took inspiration from salvaged Time Life classical music LP’s and "the indelible mystery of submarines and the deep sea."

Composed using a custom-built Max/MSP sequencer – with no external samplers, synthesizers, or acoustic instruments involved – the limitations of the process shaped these masterful, minimal compositions.

Each piece was produced as a live mix, direct to disk, with no separated tracks. Originally issued in November of 2002 on compact disc, Kranky is now making these timeless recordings available on vinyl for the first time.

from the original onesheet:
Submers is the second album from the Vancuver, BC based Scott Morgan AKA loscil. All of the tracks are named after submarines, the final cut being a requiem for the crew of the ill fated Russian nuclear vessel Kursk. Recorded at home using only samples as sound sources, the album is rife with sourceless echoes, steely surfaces and ominous melodic and rhythmic undertows. The sifted melodies are layered over muffled, clicking and pulsing rhythm tracks with an appropriately aquatic feel to the tracks.
