sea island



Released: 17th Nov 2014



Released: 17th Nov 2014


murky, densely textured depths of sound are explored with subtle pulses & pings woven within, contrasted with composed or improvised moments of acoustic instrumentation.

certain tracks on ‘sea island’, such as album opener ‘ahull’, make rhythm their focus by exploring subtle polyrhythms & investigating colliding moments of repetition & variation. though staunchly electronic at its core, instruments such as vibraphone & piano make appearances, & layers of live musicality, improvisation & detail appear in the looped & layered beds of manipulated sound recordings. a varied cast of players appear in the loscil “ensemble”, some familiar collaborators from the past such as jason zumpano on rhodes & josh lindstrom on vibraphone, & others new to the mix such as fieldheadʼs elaine reynolds who provides layered violin on ‘catalina 1943’.
