Following the release of ‘Angel’s Flight‘ through AD 93 in January, today Norwegian ambient producer Biosphere announces his next full length, scheduled for release in January via his own imprint Biophon Records.
Presented as a continuous sonic journey using vintage analog hardware, as hinted by the adopted Roland logo on the album cover, ‘Shortwave Memories‘ is said to be “inspired by the post-punk electronic music of the late 70’s and early 80’s, especially the productions of figures like Martin Hannett and Daniel Miller.”
“The last few Biosphere albums have all been made using samples and software, but Shortwave Memories is a return to vintage analog hardware from the late 70s and early 80s. Most of these instruments do not have any presets or memory storage, so all the sounds were programmed from scratch. The idea was not so much to make music that sounds like it was written in the same period. It’s more like what would happen if I had the chance to use the same instruments, and applied the same meticulous attention to detail as the producers mentioned above.”
‘Shortwave Memories’ is scheduled for release 21 January via Biophon Records. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
