Josh Humble The whole album is stunning, but I found Biosphere's Kobresia through the work of The Orb some time ago, and it just took me. The amazing orchestral sweeps, along with the samples of Russian telepath Karl Nikolaev fading in and out - very deep. Favorite track: Kobresia.

Stephan Corputty This track is so great, it has classic sci-fi elements with a huge sound scape. The whole album is awesome btw. Definitely my favorite Ambient album for 2021 so far! Favorite track: The Things I Tell You.

ricaramurica This is one of the most calming and peaceful songs I've ever heard. I take a good listen everyday and I'm at peace every time after it.
Even that vocal is crazy.
Thank you for this masterpiece! Favorite track: Kobresia.

about

David Stubbs, Melody Maker, 1997: "The best ambient album I've heard in an ice age, an album of terrifying, desolate and all-enveloping beauty."

CD1 is a remastered version of the original Substrata (ASCD33) on All Saints Records.
Digital editing assistance at Aurora Lydstudio. Additional EQ's at Strype Audio. Remastered on 4 April 2001.

CD2 contains Biosphere's soundtrack to the Russian silent movie 'Man With A Movie Camera', in collaboration with Per Martinsen aka Mental Overdrive, two bonus tracks from the Japanese version of Substrata (FLCP 1009) on For Life Records/Paradise Island, 'The Eye Of The Cyclone' and 'Endurium', plus the commissioned work Laika.
Mastered @ Country.
