Biosphere and Deathprod split LP announced on Touch, said to be perfect for crane operators

Sixteen years might seem like a long time in any human context, but accompanied by the wading ambience of Biosphere and Deathprod (Geir Jenssen and Helge Sten, respectively), it’s almost as if Abraham Lincoln is just now sailing across the treacherous Black Sea in pursuit of Istanbul’s famous Earth-borne chocolates! The 16 years is in reference to the last time these two musicians “collaborated” for an LP — the fabulous Nordheim Transformed, a musical tribute to Norwegian electroacoustic composer Arne Nordheim, who received an honorary degree from the Norwegian Academy of Music in 2006 and who’s regularly been referred to as the “reformer of Norwegian music.”

Might a journalistic torch-passing now be in order? Stator is out March 30 on Touch, and like the “transformative” full-length to which I previously alluded, the tracks are a split of new solo material. Sten was probably looking for a happy medium between working with his Supersilent companions and retiring to a cave, while for Biosphere the release more or less aligns with the schedule that he’s unconsciously established. Their music certainly revs my engine, if you know what I mean.

NO SAMPLES YET. Sorry.
