Norwegian producer’s arctic ambience in its purest form

Soft static-drenched, repetitive, lilting, electronic in origin but organic in feeling, Biosphere's version of electronic music eschews the from-another-planet model to make music that sounds like it came from beneath the earth or inside the trunks of mighty redwoods. Like dub with the intensity buffed to a soft sheen.
