Scott Morgan apparently appropriated his Loscil alter ego from the operation code within the sound synthesis system Csound.

Although he admitted he rarely used Csound to create his compelling minimalist recordings, he asserted that looping and oscillating were the basics of his music-making process. Drawing stated influence from contemporary post-techno musicians such as Oval and Wolfgang Voigt’s Gas, as well as early electronic music pioneers such as Brian Eno and Raymond Scott, he issued several ambient albums for the Kranky label, including Triple Point (2001), Submers (2002), First Narrows (2004), Plume (2006), and Endless Falls (2010). ~ John Bush, Rovi
