Supersilent is a Norwegian improvisational band formed in Bergen in 1997. The current band members are Arve Henriksen (trumpet), Ståle Storløkken (keyboards) and Helge Sten (electronics). 1998 saw the release of Supersilent’s debut album 1-3. Supersilent 6 is considered by many to be a particular highlight. While the band’s earlier work was often propelled by drums and harsh electronic treatments, the bands sound has gradually become more meditative and expansive. After the departure of their drummer Supersilent has continued to perform extensively as a trio and has meanwhile released the albums 9, 10 and 11.
For their show at transmediale 2012 Supersilent will be joined by guitarist Stian Westerhus from Norway.
