Supersilent was formed by the alliance of an existing improvisation group called Veslefrekk (having ten years of playing history behind them) with producer/sound manipulator Helge Sten (aka Deathprod). They played together for the first time, without any prior rehearsal, at the Bergen Jazz Festival in 1997 and immediately made headlines. Supersilent was quick to build a reputation as one of Scandinavia’s most viscerally exciting concert acts. There is a dangerous unpredictability about their music, a sense that anything can happen. All parameters are open. From moment to moment, they can touch on elements of hardcore noise, imply industrial soundscapes, recall Miles at the Fillmore or Stockhausen in Donaueschingen, or play the most delicate and filigree ambient soundscapes.
