in 2016, Monument Builders, Loscil‘s 11th album to date, had shaken the pond with a boundless, high-spiritual beauty. Scott Morgan, who acts behind the moniker of Loscil and was also the drummer of the amazing indie band Destroyer, has been writing experimental, ambient music from his homeland in vacouver, canada, since 1998. unsurprisingly, his contemplative music is housed at Kranky, one of best labels, if not the greatest, dedicated to this very kind of music that scorns confined boundaries and wanders towards puzzling, yet appealing, unlimited landscapes.
Loscil has just released a graceful composition entitled Boreal. this beautiful piece of reverie and escapement was created using samples from Glenn Gould’s former Steinway Piano – CD318, which is currently housed at the National Arts Centre in ottawa. Boreal is an excerpt from a set created for Ryuichi Sakamoto’s Glenn Gould gathering held in tokyo in december of 2017 and we sincerely hope it may spark off a new captivating album.
