Arve Henriksen – vocals, trumpet, percussion.

Genre: Free Improvisation. This is one of the best jazz-improv album out there. The band is at its creative peak. Trumpet and synths are sometimes beyond recognition. Its not everything: noise, avant-garde and harsh ambient. Amazing Last studio album with drums, though.

Play it over and over, and you will still find amazing things in Supersilent's 6. The level of unspoken understanding, interplay, and clarity of vision in experimentation is now beyond words. This album was put together from four days of improvisations in the studio.

Comprising of Arve Henriksen (trumpet), Helge Sten of Deathprod fame (noise and electronics), Ståle Storløkken (keyboards) and Jarle Vespestad (drums), Supersilent are about as mysterious a band as they come. Few official photos of them exist (most are taken from live performances) and their music is entirely improvised.

Supersilent continue their unique brand of jazz with 6, melding the electronic with the organic. "6.1," for instance, wavers between flutes and more harsh sweeps of sound, as a light percussion tries to rein in the chaos. "6.2" has more melancholy to it, bolstered by the mournful trumpet, and "6.3" gets more spacious in its composition before it grows and swells towards grandeur. "6.4" starts off with some reverbed country guitar twang, while "6.5" revels in the feedback and processed guitars. "6.6" ends the album on a much more angelic note, with a high-pitched Sigur Rós-like vocals drifting atop the haze. Quite nice.

Oh, My FREAKIN' LORD!--This IS the "Bitches Brew" for the 21st Century!! Miles would have been proud to come play with these guys!--Soundscapes hitherto unknown to the area of this galaxy -One for Thee Infinite Cosmos!!
This album is one which I treasure most. Highlights are 6.2 (Arve's trumpet playing is simply breathtaking on this one) and 6.4. The latter track really deserves special attention. The quiet build-up which ends in magnificent guitar outbursts. A truly piece of art.
Recorded in 2003. Supersilent is a pseudonym for deathprod. Nicely twisted and manipulated electronic and organic sounds in a vaguely twighlight zone meets film score style. A plethora of sounds and styles all fused together in a very coherent and listenable way. Odd, but good odd.
