Product Notes

Biophon present a double reissue of The Fires Of Ork 's The Fires Of Ork (1993) and The Fires Of Ork 2 (2000). The Fires Of Ork was a collaboration project between the late Pete Namlook (1960-2012) and Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere). The only two albums they recorded together are presented in this reissue.

From Discogs: "Under the moniker The Fires Of Ork Jenssen and Namlook in 1993 combined their talents. During a two-week session in Frankfurt they composed a magnificent self-titled album, a magnum opus that ranges in tone from soothing to haunting, from dark to playful. The title track (appearing in two versions) was also released on a 12-inch which, just as the album, culled rave reviews everywhere. The name 'The Fires of Ork' is taken from Roy Batty 's monologue at the end of the 1982 movie Blade Runner, as sampled on the first album by the duo."

More from Discogs: "Pardon my lack of eloquence, suffice it to say this album is utterly fantastic. I've been trying to track it down for literally years and finally succeeded. It's well worth all the effort. It's simply amazing. What can I really say, musically, about the collaboration of two of ambient electronic music's greatest producers? Listening to this album conjures up fantastic mental images, and you won't want the journey to end. I'm sure every person who's listened to this has had their own unique experience with it. I doubt I'll ever get tired of listening to it. The packaging should come with a warning label, Fires Of Ork is addictive and mind-altering."

Hyperreal: "The Fires Of Ork was the first collaboration between Pete Namlook and Geir Jenssen (aka Biosphere) and has since risen to legendary status in the ambient electronic scene as the first meeting of these two masters. Their common love for classical music as-well as dark ambient trance resulted in a unique combination of style that you could expect when you mix the essence of their Silence with Biosphere."
