Academically trained musicians of Supersilent elegantly personify notion «experimental» with their ability to indulge in an unpredictable collaboration, still claiming their individuality and being open to each other, making music without poising and anything unnecessary. The band convinces even music traditionalists. After Supersilent evening will continue with dances together with avant-garde DJ duo Dausteg (Death-step).
Term «superband» can be attributed to Supersilent because it unites such outstanding solo artists as jazz trumpeter Arve Henriksen (regular David Silviana collaborator), ambient music guru Deathprod aka Helge Sten, who is also known as the leader of rock band Motorpsycho, and keyboardist Ståle Storløkken, who has collaborated with contemporary jazz veterans Terje Rypdal, Louis Sclavis and Nils Peter Molvær.

Dausteg in Old Norwegian means „death step”, which can be considered as interpretation about dance music genre dub step; the difference is that in death step rhythm background is metallic and more avant-garde tunes.
«When we played at Club Øya (Øya festival club nights) last year, people danced to (modern composers) Giacinto Scelsi, Morton Feldman and Gyorgy Ligeti!

Riga set’s theme is Animism and Artificial Intelligence and dance as a ritual
