|Wednesday 21st||Biosphere (NO)|
From Wednesday 21st to Saturday 24th
Geir Jenssen, more known as Biosphere, is a Norwegian musician based in Tronsø, in the Arctic Circle, and one of the most distinguished artists from the electronic music scene.
His first publication in solitary, Microgravity (1991), made him one of the pioneers of ambient music. This work was followed by three acclaimed works that forged unique arctic atmospheres: Patashnik, which marks the beginning of a reduction of the rhythmic structures, Insomnia and Substrata.
In the decade of 2000 Biosphere continues the minimalist turn begun with Substrata and publishes Cirque, Substrata 2, Shenzhou, Autour de la Lune, and Dropsonde. His last production, Cho Oyu 8201m (2007), gathers field recordings during his ascension to this mountain of the Himalayas.
