Biosphere

I just wanted to know if anyone had heard of the group
before. allot of the music I listen to has a way of
intertwine its self together and they all sound grate
together. so am on a Aphex Twin site and Biosphere has very
Ambient music that has a feeling that I associate with
floating in space.
yeah so basically I recommend that anyone who like's
Richard's Ambient works checks out Biosphere.

There are awesome. They did one track that was used for one
of the funky levi adverts, just before the spaceman one, a
track called Novelty Waves on the album Patashnic ( wrong
speelling) on two slabs of blue vinyl.

He is fantastic, and Substrata and Microgravity are amazing
pieces of work.
On the IDM favorites list Biosphere's ambient works are
ranked right up there with Aphex's stuff, for real!
here's the Bio:

Biosphere's Geir Jenssen hails from Tromso, Norway, a city
500 miles into the Arctic Circle. A founding member of
quasi-new age Norwegian trio Bel Canto, Jenssen recorded a
pair of albums with that group for the Belgian Crammed label
before departing to record solo, first as Bleep, then as
Biosphere. He released a number of Bleep singles through the
late '90s on Crammed subsidiary SSR, as well as the
full-length The North Pole by Submarine, issued in 1990 and
an acknowledged precursor of what became known as ambient
techno. Fusing elements of composition derived from
environmental experimentalists such as Brian Eno, Jon
Hassell, and Walter Carlos with the rhythmic backbone of
urban dance styles such as techno and acid-house, ambient
techno's popularity would grow with the popularity of
artists such as the KLF, Irresistible Force, Higher
Intelligence Agency, and of course Biosphere. Jenssen first
material under that name, the full-length Microgravity,
appeared in 1991 on the Norwegian Origo Sound label, and was
picked up for international release by R&S subsidiary Apollo
the following year. In 1993, in addition to a score for the
Norwegian film Evige Stjerner (Eternal Stars) and work for a
multimedia installation, Jenssen collaborated with German
ambient composer Pete Namlook on the Fax release The Fires
of Ork, reissued the following year by Apollo. Jenssen
returned to Biosphere in 1994 with a second full-length,
Patashnik, and a subsequent live tour the success of which
landed one of Jenssen's tracks ("Novelty Waves") in a Levi's
commercial. In 1995, Jenssen collaborated with Higher
Intelligence Agency's Bobby Bird, performing the live
improvisational piece "Polar Frequencies," released by
Apollo in 1996. The Biosphere releases Substrata and
Insomnia followed in 1997; Cirque appeared three years
later..

thanks PostModern, I didn't know allot that stuff. yeah I
have been into his works for about a year now. yeah he's
amazing. since you actually know who am talking about I have
a track called "The Third Planet" its listed under Biosphere
and thats all I have seen it listed under on the net... but
not from what I know the song is not any album... so it
makes me wonder if its actually Biosphere. so thought I
would ask if you know anything about it. if you haven't
heard of it download it and tell if you think it's Biosphere

Hmm, I don recall a track called Third Planet by him, I
could be wrong, but theres a electronic fusion band called
Third Planet and they released an album under the same name
last year..
