Video Premiere: loscil // Lawrence English “Violet”

Pulling the curtain back on this fantastic new collaboration from two all-timers reveals a methodic approach to creating restrained grandeur. Using a collection of recordings from a century-old pipe organ in Brisbane, Australia, Scott Morgan (aka loscil) and Lawrence English embark headfirst on a trip of emotive electronic pathways. Geometric patterns in the video move with a calm purpose, drawing shapes around the melancholic swells and pensive rhythm. Spacious, dub-inflected sonic architecture reveals itself beneath the ghostly ether, the frame allowing these transitive sonic refractions to escape the downward gravity. 

“Violet” appears on loscil // Lawrence English’s forthcoming album, Colours of Air, which will be released on February 3 via Kranky. Stream below and pre-order HERE.
