"... the Norwegian experimentalists continue to haunt the dark, underexplored basements of electro-improvisational music ... Supersilent's music exists beyond any normal human activity, any comprehensible emotion. It's hard to imagine partying, housecleaning, or commuting with it, as its screeches, melted horn riffs and creep show keyboards bombard the edge of reason ... when you listen to it, you can't really do anything but listen to it ... the group's distant roots are in free jazz, which they still stitch into abstract patchworks of ambient music and arrhythmic noise."
- Pitchfork

Supersilent's aptly-titled 13th album is another platform for the highly physical, entirely improvised brand of electronic music made by the Norwegian supergroup trio. Arve Henriksen’s hypnotic trumpet has been heard with everyone from David Sylvian to Laurie Anderson. Keyboardist Ståle Storløkken has worked with Motorpsycho, Terje Rypdal and the Humcrush duo with Sidsel Endresen. Helge Sten uses a complex array of homemade electronics, samplers, processors and analogue effects, known as the "Audio Virus," in his solo ambient project Deathprod, as well as having worked with Motorpsycho and producing artists like Susanna. The trio swaps instruments with abandon: percussion, trumpet and woodwind, electronics and Storløkken’s collectable assortment of vintage keyboards. In this technologized environment, sounds are passed around, distorted and spat out again in tantalizing splurges.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
