This 180g vinyl edition of Substrata is released by Geir Jenssen's own label, Biophon. It comes as a double gatefold album featuring the bonus track "Laika." 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 15 years, he has released a string of critically-acclaimed albums. 1997's Substrata, which marked Jenssen's embarkment towards an intensely minimal style, is not only often considered to be his best work to date, but is also seen as one of the all-time classic ambient albums. Remastered by Stefan Betke at Scape Mastering, Berlin. New artwork by David Coppenhall.
