Biosphere is the main recording name of Geir Jenssen, a Norwegian musician who has released a notable catalogue of ambient electronic music. He is well known for his works on ambient techno and arctic themed pieces, his use of music loops, and peculiar samples from sci-fi sources. His 1997 album Substrata was voted by the users of the Hyperreal website in 2001 as the best all-time classic ambient album. Inland Delta contains nine new musical pieces recorded from 2022 to 2023, featuring mainly improvised performances on newly restored vintage keyboards.

The release of any new Biosphere album is cause for celebration, especially when the man himself – the great Geir Jenssen – has chosen a specific theme or concept. ‘Inland Delta’, his first new full-length for almost two years, features (in his words) “mostly improvised performances on newly restored vintage keyboards”. In practice, that means a slightly more colourful and fluid ambient sound than some of his many ambient albums, plus inherent warmth missing from his often icy compositions. There’s plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the slow-moving cinematic bliss of ‘Franklin’s Dream’ and the shuffling shimmer of ‘Delta Function’, to the becalmed, slowly unfurling dreaminess of ‘The String Thing’ and the Tangerine Dream-does-ambient loveliness of ‘Florian’s Flute’. – Juno
