Norway's Supersilent in their 9th release, now a trio after the departure of drummer Vespestad, all playing the Hammond Organ in 4 otherworldly improvisations.


Supersilent: 9 (Rune Grammofon)
Label: Rune Grammofon    
Released in: Norway    

"This is the ninth release in the Supersilent series. After 12 years as a quartet, drummer Jarle Vespestad decided to call it a day before the start of recording sessions at Oslo's famous Rainbow Studios. This spurred two further sessions, one taking place at Henie Onstad Art Centre with all three members playing Hammond organs. This album is put together from that session, but it is debatable whether anyone would figure out the instrumentation without prior knowledge. It's also fair to say that 9 as a whole goes a long way towards being the most avant-garde and otherworldly recording the band has done so far. The album was mixed and produced by Deathprod (Helge Sten) and mastered by mastering guru Bob Katz in close collaboration with Deathprod, with a view to keep the dynamic range of the original recording intact.

Supersilent have been going for 12 years, always moving forward with the greatest integrity. Supersilent music is collective work -- total group improvisation, and not a matter of individual grandstanding. They never rehearse as a group, and don't discuss the music with each other, meeting only to play concerts or to record. Every recording and every concert are unique occasions not to be repeated and their music lives in a no-man's-land between the genres, somewhere between rock, electronica, jazz and modern composition."-Rune Grammofon
