Polar Sequences (1996). A collaboration between Biosphere's Geir Jennsen and Bobby Bird of Higher Intelligence Agency, commissioned by the Norwegian government for live performance at the 1995 Polar Music Festival. Suitably frosty melodies and glacial textures provide the framework for compositions utilizing the natural environment of the Arctic Circle for inspiration and source material (snow falling, ice cracking and splitting, the clang of cable car mountain lifts, etc.), to often remarkable effect. Sparse beats occasionally bubble up, but the focus is definitely on the icy edge of Arctic life.
Birmingham Frequencies (1999). In 1995, Higher Intelligence Agency & Biosphere took the cable car together to the top of a mountain outside Tromsø and produced Polar Sequences, one of the truly classic ambient collaborations, comparable to the Brian Eno/Harold Budd records. Now they have ascended a tower in midtown Birmingham and applied the same aesthetic used in pastoral Norway to a city centre in England. Employing sounds sourced from their surroundings, “Birmingham Frequencies” is perhaps a tad more dynamic, as befits the urban perspective, than the undulating aurora borealis of Polar Sequences. The patented, warm electronics of Biosphere are perfectly complemented by the jauntier rhythms and extrapolations of HIA.
