Morning. We're really excited to announce a run of special A/V shows around the UK as part of our ongoing Decomposition Theory project. Each show will be a unique, live collaborative performance with generative music algorithms we made. When we started this project, it was a way to try and imagine better futures from the mire of the outmoded music industry... Automation as emancipation, not alienation! Didn’t turn out that way though. We don’t trust the thoughts we’ve coded into our machines. They don't trust us either. Tickets go on sale 10am tomorrow. Check 65daysofstatic.com for links.

Tickets for Robert Smith's Meltdown Festival went on sale this morning. We are playing Meltdown Festival. Yes. We are. Come one come all it's gonna be goooooooood. https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/128160-65daysofstatic-2018?utm_source=65daysofstatics%20socials&utm_medium=65daysofstatic&utm_campaign=Meltdown%202018

Ten years ago we toured with The Cure, opening up for them in arenas all over Europe and the U.S. It was great. A little later Robert Smith was kind enough to lend us his vocals for Come to Me and also kind enough not to be bothered when we cut them into glitchy pieces and covered them in distortion. Now he's been kind enough to invite us to play his Meltdown festival alongside some of the greatest bands in the history of bands. So that's what we're doing. We're playing 15th June. Tickets are on sale from 13th March if you're a member of the Southbank Centre, or 15th March if you're not.

Hi. Next week we’re debuting some new music at Millennium Galleries in Sheffield. It’s part of a project called Decomposition Theory or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Demand the Future. Usually we write songs from the inside, working our way outwards. At the core it starts with some bright, little idea, full of potential, expanding in every direction at once. As we work outwards, bits of the idea are trapped in the form of parts of a song. By the time we're making a record, we're usually outside the song, looking at it as a whole, sculpting its final shape. It gets fixed in time. Somewhere along the way, something of the original idea is always lost. Decomposition Theory is an attempt to work from the outside back in. Or maybe bring the inside back out with us. To make what’s essential to the music be the process of making it, instead of its final form. Every time we run this music, it will change. Songs exist as collections of sounds, logic and rules. Familiar but always different. No definitive versions of anything. It’s not improvisation, because people have better things to do than listen to us fuck about for an hour in case something cool happens. It’s more an attempt to keep all the bits we think make good songs without closing off the excitement of not knowing exactly what happens next. We had meant for the development process to be more transparent too. However, increasingly useless at social media, we made a tumblr blog and then didn’t fill it. We briefly remembered to shout about the shows on twitter and then got back to trying to fix the algorithms we’re writing. We mostly ignore facebook altogether, because facebook is. a. fucking. monster. 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. Of course, we’re hoping that people will pay to come and see this. Only one of the shows is free. But y’know. This is where we’re all at. If you are in or close to Sheffield, do come down next week. The context might sound weird, but the music we’ll be making isn’t. It’s feels as good as anything we’ve ever written, even if we don’t know exactly what it will sound like yet. Onwards! 65ers. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are going to be premiering a new work at Algomech Festival in Sheffield, November. Decomposition Theory is a performance built from music that will be generated in realtime by various algorithms we have made to do our bidding, or code that we type live. This is all new material. In fact, it will always be new material. Each performance will be different. Recognisable, but different. Like the cyborg who’s impersonating your murdered partner. More info to come in the coming weeks. https://youtu.be/MOcQbFTsemI
