The compilations collect music “written for dance projects over the last ~eight years”

Loscil announces a new two-part compilation bringing together original compositions for dance choreographers. Today, Vancouver born producer Scott Morgan shared The sails p. 1which you can listen to in full below.

In a note accompanying the first half of the compilation, Morgan explains that the two albums bring together music “written for dance projects over the last ~eight years”, adding, “All of these compositions were specifically commissioned by the choreographers for their projects, many of which may no longer be performed (and one that has never been staged).”

The nine tracks that form The sails p. 1 were created to mark the works of choreographers James Gnam, Vanessa Goodman, Damien Jalet, Paolo Mangiola and Kathryn Rickets. Morgan shares that for the compilation, the material was “edited and reworked…for better sequencing and to breathe new life into the music.”

The sails p. 1 is also available to upload your prize name through Bandcamp, before Second part‘s coming “in the next few months.” Morgan shared on Twitter that the first volume of the compilation will also receive a larger DSP release.

Last year, Morgan delivered Claire, his thirteenth LP as Loscil who Exclaim! gave a review of 7/10.

Later in 2021 it would deliver LUX refractionscontaining four tracks of longer form derived from the same musical source as Claire: a three-minute recording of a composition performed by a 22-piece string orchestra in Budapest, Hungary.
