LOSCIL

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).  Morgan has predominantly released music through Portland’s Kranky label including his forthcoming twelfth full length, 2019's "Equivalents".  He has composed for film, dance and video games and has toured his music worldwide including at esteemed festivals such as Mutek, Le Guess Who, TodaysArt, Soy, Decibel and Big Ears.

PRESS:

"...an impressive catalogue of pensive, minimal records that turn computerized sounds into something strangely soothing-- the kind of music you want to listen to flat on your back, eyes fixed at the ceiling..." PITCHFORK
 
"Some of Loscil’s best, most menacing, most uncompromising work." DROWNED IN SOUND
 
"...a highly visual album, a mosaic of images depicting construction, erasure, devastation, redemption, and transformation." PITCHFORK

MARCONI UNION

Following a successful series of live outings over the summer, Marconi Union are delighted to join Canada's Loscil (Kranky) for a short tour of some of England's best A/V venues. Marconi Union will perform further new material and be accompanied by the emotive visual projections of Art’s Collective DOTCA.

 Marconi Union fit somewhere between artists such as Kraftwerk, Biosphere and Boards of Canada – whilst sounding nothing like any of these. Over their 17 year career Marconi Union have released nine critically acclaimed albums and worked with people from Marina Ambramovich Institute to Jah Wobble.

 As writers of “the most relaxing track in the world”, Marconi Union “are one of the most popular ambient groups to emerge during the early 21st century” having amassed tens of millions of downloads and streams, regularly topping the US Billboard New Age chart and frequently appearing in the US Billboard Electronic chart.
