Biosphere is the second in a series of Artist-In-Residency performances in the 4DSOUND system.
4DSOUND enables you to walk through space and experience sound from all directions. Sound seems to hover in space – like a phantom. Sounds move around, above, beneath and in-between the listeners.
Biosphere is the main recording name of Norwegian Geir Jenssen, one of the pioneers in ambient electronic music since the early nineties. He is well known for his 'ambient techno' and 'arctic ambient' styles, 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.
Biosphere scrolls through surfaces, constructs machinery, and unravels microscopic electronic patterns. His architectural approach emphasizes space, on either a hyper level or wide open fields. Biosphere's arctic homeland Norway sets the scenery of many of his musical projects. But also other locations and conditions have been subject to his work, like the instability of Japan's nuclear power plants.
Biosphere creates immersive atmospheres in which time and space are being anatomized.
A Q&A with the artist will take place after the performance.
