Biosphere is the main recording name of Geir Jenssen, a Norwegian musician who has released a notable catalogue of ambient electronic music. He is well known for his ambient techno and arctic ambient styles, his use of music loops, and peculiar samples from sci-fi and other sources. Biosphere regularly performs live at electronic music festivals and in clubs throughout Europe and around the world, often performing improvisations or variations on newer tracks on a laptop while video art is projected behind him.

Jenssen has released numerous albums under the Biosphere name since 1991, both solo works and collaborative works as well as film scores. His track “Novelty Waves” was used for the 1995 Levi’s ad campaign and made the charts in several countries. His 1997 album Substrata is generally seen as one of the all-time classic ambient albums.
