Drexcited Probably my absolute favorite of all Biosphere releases. The jazzy drum pieces are, I can't find words right now. The soft melodies, the repetitive drums, the hats, it's so good. Trust me, you'll like this. Favorite track: In The Shape Of A Flute [Digital bonus track].

blade Dropsonde has some of the best downtempo tracks I've heard and overall, it's a great album. Favorite track: In Triple Time.

brapallgood Bootlegged this off YT years ago, have put it on at bedtime almost every single night since. About to turn 50 and have no other album in my vast collection with as many listens. Happy to be in a position to finally buy it. You've inspired me musically since your first album. One day I'll catch up.

about

The title refers to a dropsonde, a device designed to be dropped at altitude by parachute to collect data as the device falls to the ground (on Earth or sent to another planet.)

A Dropsonde sampler was pre-released on vinyl as a mini album on 27 September 2005 and the full album released on compact disc in January 2006 (though the track "In the Shape of a Flute" remained exclusive to the vinyl sampler).

Unlike Jenssen's previous output, there is a notable jazz influence present on this album (such as on the tracks "Birds Fly By Flapping Their Wings" and "In Triple Time"), evocative of Miles Davis's 1970s jazz fusion works.[2] Some tracks also integrates material Jenssen recorded in late 2001 during his climbing of the 8201 meters mount Cho Oyu in Himalaya. (The raw material itself was released some months later as Cho Oyu 8201m – Field Recordings from Tibet.)
