Over decades and across innumerable live and recorded projects, both sides of this remarkable collaboration have embedded themselves on the map of exploratory contemporary music.
The Norwegian ensemble Supersilent have just one rule: no rehearsals, every recording and concert is entirely improvised. The trio are capable of creating compositions of both profound beauty and elemental power.
John Paul Jones, founder member of Led Zeppelin, has played, arranged and recorded with artists including Dusty Springfield, Tom Jones, The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and Cat Stevens. Since 2004, he has performed and toured and in 2009 he co-founded the band Them Crooked Vultures, releasing a universally acclaimed album. John is currently writing an opera based on Strindberg’s The Ghost Sonata.
