Substrata + Man with a Movie Camera

A 21 track ambient album (2h 6m 39s) — released January 13th 2017 on Biophon Records (Norway)

***2017 REPRESS!!***

One of the all-time classic ambient albums. This edition of Substrata is released by Geir Jenssen's own label Biophon Records. It comes as a double gatefold album with the bonus album Man With A Movie Camera.

Biosphere is widely regarded as one of the legendary names in ambient / electronic music. Residing in Norway, near the Arctic Circle, he has found the focus to slowly and steadily create a self-contained aural universe, made up of reflective and immersive sound sculptures. For almost fifteen years he has released a string of critically acclaimed albums. Substrata, which marked Jenssen's embarkation towards an intensely minimal style, is not only often considered to be Jenssen's best work to date, but is also seen as one of the all time classic ambient albums.

David Stubbs, Melody Maker, 1997: "The best ambient album I've heard in an ice age, an album of terrifying, desolate and all-enveloping beauty".
