Shenzou is Biosphere’s 2002 record, upon which most of the tracks were built out of scratchy old vinyl samples of Debussy recordings, which lends the album a Gas-like classical flavour beneath all that nice shimmering looping ambience. This reissue of Shenzou also contains the album The Samphire Tower in full, as a bonus! Double CD and triple LP editions.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 28th December 2017

Shenzou is more in the line of early loop masters, such as John Cage, with the idea that repeating samples of recorded material can produce a music of its own - slowly unfolding, never trying to arrive somewhere, but either for active or passive listening. No melody stands out at first, the loops floating above understated rhythm and familiar harmonies. But, listen long enough and a kind of melody comes out. It took me a few hearings to understand what Biosphere is doing here - when I got it, I became hooked.
