about

We are made up of the same basic elements that inhabit the universes most distant corners, however, we observe the universe from far deeper within. We are the universe witnessing itself - contemplating and questioning from the inside. If “intelligent” life is defined by consciousness, then we are a part of the universe’s very own consciousness observing itself from within the sanctuary of a fragile life support system - a tiny blue biosphere. How we treat this celestial gift will be the biggest verification as to whether we are truly intelligent or not.” -Rhian Sheehan

The follow up to his critically acclaimed ‘Paradigm Shift’ album was Rhian Sheehan’s ‘Tiny Blue Biosphere’. ‘Tiny Blue Biosphere’ is nothing short of an expansion on what Rhian has already delivered, extending himself to a sixteen piece string section, collaborating with the likes of Gramsci and Anika Moa, and creating two vocal tracks with Jess Chambers.

Once again, as he did on “Paradigm Shift” Rhian blends the acoustic with the electronic to create a rich musical journey, except this time his vision has expanded, and the music is far more assured, able to create broad emotive sweeps of real strings, to marshal a world of sound from both machines and acoustic instruments, and create a unique sense of his own musical geography. Then come those fragments of location recordings, the birds and a stream in ‘Phobos’, anchoring the lush landscape of ‘Tiny Blue Biosphere’ in a place we can all recognize.
