A classic album that defines what ambient is in its truest sense of the genre, you won't be disappointed.See those lists on the side? check it out as it is still exciting and fun even after all these years.

When it came to keeping the spirit of ambient/techno alive, Biosphere came to the rescue. In a time of TripHop/Jungle/DnB being in vogue, Geir Jenssen didn't yield a centimeter, he produced an even more chilling masterpiece than Patashnik, with Substrata.

And for the budding arctic botanist, it is probably interesting that these get a mention: Poa Alpina, Kobresia, Antennaria, Uva-Ursi, Silene

This is probably the ambient album I listened most and still every time I press play I continue to be totally absorbed by the magnificent soundscapes composed by Geir Jenssen. Electronic music ages very fast, but it is not the case of this album released almost twenty years ago that still sounds fresh and contemporary. This summer I'll go to Norway on holiday and I look forward to experience this album while I drive through the fjords!!

Since morning when I pressed play till when I fall asleep in the late night, this sonorous timeless brilliance was on re-play. Thank you Geir Jenssen for this magnificence collection of sounds shared to the world!
