Biography

Tromsø, Norway

Biosphere is the main recording name of Geir Jenssen (born 1962 in Tromsø, Norway), a musician who has released a notable catalog of ambient electronic music. He is well known for his “” then “” styles, and his use of music loops and peculiar samples from sci-fi sources. His track “Novelty Waves” was used for the 1995 Levi’s ad campaign. His 1997 album Substrata is generally seen as one of the all-time classic ambient albums. Before launching Biosphere, Jenssen was a member of the Norwegian dream pop band Bel Canto. Bel Canto released records on the Belgium-based label Crammed Discs.

Some tracks are freely downloadable on Biosphere’s website.

    Night_Driver thanks a lot! Insane performance, Africa in the middle of sunny day, strange guy in the background pouring tea. That's not what you imagine when you think about Biosphere concert :)

    Cualquiera hace esos sonidos en FL Studio .-. Primera vez que lo oigo, me quedo solo con "Poa Alpina" pero igual la malogro con el piano -.- , de no ser por eso, la tonada ambient hubiera sido epica :(

    Чудесен, слушая его, реально ощущаешь себя замурованным внутри айсберга, либо же шагающим по бескрайним ледяным просторам под северное сияние на сиреневом небе.

    Biosphere released new track, 10min long Das Subharchord. It was recorded on famous german synthesizer, which typical sound had huge impact on 'elektronische musik' back in 1950'. Nonetheless it's much more than only interesting historical curiosity, especially in the second part of a track.
