65daysofstatic are a noisy instrumental band formed in Sheffield in 2001. They have released six albums and numerous eps and singles, developing a sound that is as compelling as it is divisive. Once intent on taking over the world with noise, they now content themselves with taking it over one room of people at a time.

Their music has taken them from the club circuits of Northern Europe to the arenas and dive bars of America; warehouses on the edge of Siberia to airstrips, jungles and all-nighters in the Far East and Australia.  

Please note, this event is 14+ (under 16s must be accompanied by someone who's 18 or over).

    Fresh from their critically acclaimed, infinitely-long and decidedly non-linear soundtrack to the universe-sized No Man's Sky video game, and as active contributors to the burgeoning live-coding and 'algorave' scenes, with Decomposition Theory, 65daysofstatic are once again refusing to be easily categorised.

    Inspired by the 'show us your screens' attitude of live coders, their Decomposition Theory A/V show uses generative visuals to reveal the inner workings of 65’s musical algorithms. The code flashes by, logging every musical event as the band curate and sculpt the generative output in realtime. The musical process, not the band, is placed front and centre. 

    Decomposition Theory is 65’s effort to imagine a space where music no longer has to take the shapes it is so often coerced into taking. In their own words:

    ‘Why are we doing this? No doubt, 65 are a long way from the frontline in any kind of struggle against capitalism and the abyss of a future it's driving us toward. But perhaps there's a minor supporting role in trying to imagine better futures. We are not railing against recorded music or albums or regular live shows, or what it can mean to be a band. However, these are all commodified forms. Almost all the ways anyone can relate to music these days are mediated through capital. Because we exist in relation to capital. We’re all drowning in it. It's almost impossible to think outside of it. And so Decomposition Theory is some small effort to imagine a space where music is no longer shaped in commodity forms, and a live show doesn’t emphasise the ritual of performance. We are un-songing our songs and un-performing on stage.’

    This is ambitious, utopian thinking from a band at the top of their game.
