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.
