The heavily computerized music of Loscil is courtesy of a single man -- Scott Morgan. Influenced by the likes of Cluster, Henry Mancini, and Gavin Bryars, the Vancouver-based musician uses samplers, synthesizers, computer programming, and other effects to create a highly original sound. A self-released album, A New Demonstration of Thermodynamic Tendencies, caught the ear of the Chicago independent label Kranky, who in turn signed Morgan's project and issued Triple Point in October of 2001. The album featured six tracks previously issued on Thermodynamic Tendencies, as well as four new tracks. Submers, Morgan's second official Loscil album, followed the next year. In addition to his Loscil duties, Morgan also drums for Vancouver alt-rockers Destroyer, has designed music for films, DVDs, CD-ROMs, and websites, and wrote music to accompany films at the Barcelona Off-Line Flash Film Festival in May 2001.
