Biosphere – Shenzhou 3LP Reissue (Biophon Records, 2017)

// Geir Jenssen has a remarkable ear for knowing exactly how much should be revealed in his compositions, where too much would deplete the mystery of his music, while too little could leave it meandering within an ineffectual vacuum. On Shenzhou, Jenssen hunts for this balance using extracts from dusty Debussy records. The result is a collection of effortlessly fluid drone pieces that commence as if from inside pin holes, eventually gathering the weight of entire worlds. As time has gone on Jenssen’s samples have become more obscured, more deeply buried within the moods he creates. Shenzhou is but another in a long list of timeless albums from the man’s enduring work as Biosphere.
