Album Review

Clearly a producer with an unapologetic love for the conceptual, Scott Morgan's second album for Kranky as Loscil takes on an aquatic theme — each track is named after a submarine. However, not a whole lot has changed in Morgan's approach from his debut. These tracks sound only a little more aqueous than the ones on Triple Point, continuing to carry wide-open spatial qualities, with the odd hint of dub occasionally thrown in for variation (with its lathery suds of dubspace, "Le Plongeur" rivals Rhythm & Sound's best work). The only significant difference is the emphasis on waves of rhythm over thumps and pulses. "Triton" is the most wonderful thing Morgan has produced yet, an elegantly dramatic, filmic composition based on a submerged two-note bass hum, a series of rhythmic noise effects, and what sounds like a sampled and drastically altered orchestral arrangement. The notes are emitted lucidly, but they resemble a string arrangement as heard through some type of mildly muffling filter — a body of water, perhaps? If the only track on the disc that follows it hadn't been produced in honor of the 118 people who died on the Kursk, a Russian sub, it would've been the perfect closing. Submers tops Morgan's impressive debut and provides further proof that the field of ambient techno continues to have plenty to offer. If Markus Guentner's In Moll was 2001's surrogate Gas record, Submers is the 2002 edition.

Customer Reviews

Great Album

This was one of my "recommend" albums via iTunes. The Album is great, and something that I absolutly fell in love with! However, beware: 2 tracks from the album (Argonaut I and Kursk) in the iTunes store contain digital skips/pops. I filed a report on 10 December 2006, and was told on 13 Dec 2006 that they "may" upload a new copy of the two music pieces in 2-3 weeks. iTunes credited my account for both songs, so I will try again around 4 Jan 2007 to see if it is indeed fixed. If the music has not been fixed, I will request a full refund for the album so that I can go out and buy the CD-that is how much I like this album. I give this album 5 stars. I give the itunes digital copy 1 star due to digital errors in the two songs.

Amazingly done

This album will trip you out, in a good way, im sure many like it on many different levels, but i prefer to listen to it while reading or going in the spa while drifting up at the stars... Mute, wow. truely an amazing piece of work, very very dark. Try reading the house of leaves and listening to mute and tell me your not trapped in darkness. Buy this song if you arent into any of it, which i wouldnt understand.

Amazing Ambient!

...this album is truly incredible!

It merges into the space and provokes a dreamy and creative mood.

Biography

Born: Canada

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Born in Canada, Scott Morgan apparently appropriated his Loscil alter ego from the operation code within the sound synthesis system Csound. Although he admits he rarely actually uses Csound to create his compelling minimalist recordings, he asserts that looping and oscillating are the basics of his music-making process. Loscil's debut, Triple Point, was named after the scientific term for the temperature where a material can exist with its solid, liquid, and gas phases all in equilibrium. Based on...
