Things move slowly in Scott Morgan's world. Recording as Loscil this
Canadian electronic musician/composer has been making music in much
the same mould since 1998. His ambient inventions have a minimalist
intimacy which is both structured and experimental. His sonic landscapes
are built up around simple pulsing rhythmic foundations, sometimes
hauntingly bleak (for example 'Pressure' from his 1991 album 'Triple Point')
and at others almost warmly inviting in nature (witness the beautiful title
track from his 2004 release 'First Narrows'). The common thread in all his
work is a singularly unhurried muse which, although non-programmatic and
open to subjective interpretation, is nonetheless highly listenable.

His new recording 'Sketches From New Brighton' is a fine addition to his
oeuvre. These nine pieces are full of a hundred kinds of shadow and light
and are blessed with greater density and subtle melodic variation than we
have encountered before. The warm, gently pulsing ebb and flow of opening
track 'Khanamoot' and the luminous 'Second Narrows' display an almost jazzy
sensibility; the subterranean depths of 'Fifth Anchor Span' are cut through
with plaintive guitar lines and icy synth decorations, like strange blue
lights blinking half-seen beneath the ice and final track 'Prairie Trains'
both broods and glistens like a boundless night sky stretching to infinity.

Mr Morgan's hidden depths continue to deliver unexpected delights.
