Catalog no.: KRANKLP0000204

Item ID: 442221

Now also on vinyl, it's the 2016 album from Loscil, the ambient/electronic project of prolific composer SCOTT MORGAN. The music was primarily created on sample-based instruments in Morgan's century old Vancouver home. Like that aged space, this music is also rough-hewn, with rickety samples of boiling kettles and resonant moving air. According to Morgan, the genesis for the album may have begun as he viewed an old VHS copy of the American experimental film 'Koyaanisqatsi'.

Also available: MONUMENT BUILDERS (CD).
