A first-time collaborative LP of acoustic improvisers Sult (Håvard Skaset: guitar / Jacob Felix Heule: percussion / Guro Skumsnes Moe: contrabass) and Norwegian sound artist Lasse Marhaug. The source material is performed by Sult, while the album was constructed and produced by Lasse Marhaug. In the hands of Marhaug the already dense and visceral expression of Sult is transformed into a maelstrom of layered sheets of scraping noise, rising and collapsing simultaneously. Some listeners will place “Harpoon” in the proximity of artists like Organum, David Tudor and Ferial Confine, but the music carves its own place in the landscape. A joint release between Pica Disk and Conrad Sound, limited to 200 copies.

“As their practice, Sult prepares their own sonic universe made of scrapings and twists (wood or metal is indifferent), stunning and suffocating in its frontal impact, all harmonic cuts, creaking, friction sparks, parasites swarming to infest the body and the sensation of an imposing, slowed implosion of the surrounding... The sound of stuff falling apart, going off axis... Between tension and release (more collapse). Visionary non-aligned ferocity.” - Marco Carcasi / Kathodik (via Google Translate)

One of Rolling Stone’s “20 Best Avant Albums of 2017”. “…an already abrasive improv trio mutated into a massive swarm of ick.” - Christopher R. Weingarten

Sult Oslo, Norway

Sult explores the hidden sounds of acoustic instruments (guitar, contrabass, percussion), magnifying them with microphones so the audience can join them inside their silent cacophony. Subtle harmonics become saws cutting through metal, and creaking wooden bodies become sinking ships. ... more
