The Guest List
Thursday December 29th, 2022 with Joe Reilly
An interview with Scott Morgan - who is loscil - about the two recordings he released in 2022 - Sails p. 1 and Sails p. 2

NOTE: The On Demand version of this show includes an extra piece of music (Never) in its entirety and and additional interview segment of Scott talking about the piece. As we wrap up 2022, it is my pleasure to check in with Scott Morgan - who creates music under the name loscil - about two albums he released this year. Scott is a composer who creates ambient, electronic soundscapes that in many ways defy easy description - but suffice to say if you enjoy the work of Brian Eno, Philip Glass and maybe Tangerine Dream you'll like plenty of what you hear on the two albums we are talking about today. For Sails p. 1 and Sails p. 2, Scott went back into the loscil files and dug out, edited and polished up a lot of music he had composed for dance troupes and choreographers and then fit them together into two gorgeous collections of beautiful soundscapes. Scott tells us about the process of collaborating with choreographers and videographers making this music and he also reveals some of the source material used to create this amazing music. Enjoy.

Great interview and amazing music from an artist I'm not very familiar with at all, but should be!

Thanks Manmohan. Scott Morgan has released a series of fantastic recordings and these were his newest in 2022 - although it is a collection of older material. Check out his works at his Bandcamp site. It's hard for me to pick favourites, but I truly love Clara and Lux Refractions. The story behind both of these recordings is amazing and can be heard on past versions of the Guest List. Here is where Scott talks to me about Clara: And here is where we talk about Lux Refractions: Thanks for listening and enjoy!
