I love this album however to me it does sound like was mastered from an 8 bit recording off a 30 year old TDK D type 1 cassette. Don't get me wrong thats not a straight diss, there is a big part of me that really likes the slightly muffled raw sound of this period from Gier in a nostalgic romantic way.
Anyway great album.

The samples " The risk is great, the decision of course, is yours " and " Can we make it back to earth ? " Come from the British TV series - Space 1999. :-)

Vinyl repress is needed! 50euros for a 'very good' (so probably just a 'good') is just too much for a student like me.

A prime slice of trippy and spacey techno; a more ambient texture than his previous release (Microgravity), and contains the hit 'Novelty waves', used in a Levi's advert on British telly. This was at the rear end of that heady period when it seemed anything was possible with ambient music and techno/dub/house- truly great times. Uplifting, and rather exciting technoid rhythms set against some rather unsettling samples, it is of it's period and still pretty fresh today.

Biosphere's second album, PATASHNIK, opens with a creepy sample (lifted from the film THE KRAYS), dropping you immediately into a discomfiting space. And although "Startoucher" and "Decryption" (with its samples from the film _Scanners_) levy the mood somewhat, the dark thrums of "Novelty Waves" bring you back thundering into outer space. But while you're there, you can enjoy the heartbeat rhythm and lovely drive of "Patashnik," while "Mir" lets you drift further and further out, until you've reached the uneasy area of "The Shield." "Botanical Dimensions" returns us to an earth-like place, with rainforest sounds dotting the track, and "En-Trance" brings in a gentle guitar strum to take the album out. Certainly not as moody as MICROGRAVITY, but more spacious to make up for it.

Geir Jenssen is Biosphere, Biosphere is the soundtrack to the mountains, the frozen sea, the looming winter forest. Cold landscapes and brilliantly crafted waves of sound pour out of this album.

One of his earlier works, Patashnik is full of excellent samples that fit perfectly into the world he has created for this music to live in. In his earlier works as BLEEP he worked with a lot of beats in the material, this is still evident in his earlier work as Biosphere. Not saying that all the songs have a driven line of beats, many are dreamy ladscapes that tug at your imagination.

This is defenitly a must have for any Biosphere fan, and highly reccomended for anyone into Ambient music.
