Decomposition Theory

This event has passed.

Fresh from their critically acclaimed soundtrack to the video game No Man’s Sky, experimental post-rock band 65daysofstatic continue their exploration of non-linear music.

Their latest work, Decomposition Theory employs algorithms and coding to build each performance. Using visuals to reveal the inner working of their music, no two performances will ever be the same, as the band sculpt and shape the procedurally-generated sounds in real time.

“Decomposition Theory is some small effort to imagine a space where music is no longer shaped in commodity forms… We are un-songing our songs and un-performing on stage.” — 65daysofstatic
