Loscil - Adrift
By Scott Morgan
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Adrift is a collection of 4 pieces of endless music by ambient musician loscil. The music uses structured random selection to continuously play with no beginning or end. The pieces were conceived as aural backdrops, seascapes of sound in which the listener is encouraged to drift in and out of; at times becoming focal points for deep listening and otherwise sinking into the subconscious. Each of the four pieces is named after an infamous ghost ship. Like the ships themselves, the music is adrift at sea, wandering with the tides, following the swells of the waves, aimless and lost.
Acoustic and electronic sources were recorded and produced as individual phrases and elements that the application selects and weaves together on the fly making each experience of the music slightly different. Adrift features original artwork by Gregory Euclide, compositions and production by Scott Morgan with musicians Kelly Wyse on piano, Mark Bridges on cello and Elisa Thorn on harp.

If you love Loscil, you will love this
I've been a big fan of Loscil's music since first narrows. His albums are some of my most frequently played because they have become part of my bedtime ritual. I also love playing his music anytime I need a new perspective on life.
Anyway, this app is like a Loscil album that is new yet familiar ever time you play it. It's brilliant.
Loscil's Adrift is pure genius
Better than any sleeping pill and without any harsh side effects, these hypnotic ambient soundscapes will slowly seep into your unconscious, taking you on a dream-inducing journey across vast oceans of your mind. Simply brilliant! Not since Amp's epic Ambient masterpiece "Perception" have I been so enchanted.
"Adrift" takes the listener on a delicate and endless journey which is never the same twice. Put on a good set of headphones and let yourself get lost at sea.
