Supersilent is a Norwegian avant-garde/electroacoustic group signed on Rune Grammofon. Their musical approach emphasizes heavily on spontaneous composition, meaning their music is deliberately improvised.
Supersilent was formed when the free jazz trio Veslefrekk (Arve Henriksen on trumpet, keyboardist Ståle Storløkken, and Jarle Vespestad on drums) played a concert with producer, live electronics artist and self-described "audio virus" Helge Sten (a.k.a. Deathprod). The concert encouraged them to record a three-disc, three-hour compilation of abrasive material, simply titled 1-3, which was Rune Grammofon's very first release in 1997.
