31) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Biosphere-'Patashnik'
I can almost guarantee that you've heard the music
of Geir Jensen played somewhere in your life, you just didn't know it,
and being an ambient music master, he would almost prefer it that way.
Most of his music is so incredibly spacey and atmospheric; it would
be easy to pass up if you weren't really listening. However, somewhere,
some TV show, some movie trailer, some digital or satellite radio station,
you have heard the music of Geir Jensen. He's made many records under
the name Biosphere, but this is most certainly my favorite album by
him under this guise. That said, I would have to put The Fires of Ork
albums as the best music he's ever been a part of though. Like those
albums, tonight's "Mid-Morning Recording" is up there as one
of my favorite albums to drift off to sleepy land. It makes me feel
like an astronaut. "Can you imagine an extra-terrestrial disc-jockey?
Like listening to radio waves from space
It was unbelievable!"
