Details

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.

Ostensibly a touring rock band, 65 have also developed a healthy portfolio of extra-curricular activities while maintaining a decade of peripatetics. Such as ‘Sleepwalk City’ at the Millennium Galleries in Sheffield; a sixteen speaker A/V installation that mashed Google satellite imagery into algorithmic drone fabrication, culminating in a glorious marathon of nine live performances across two nights.

Other recent projects include music realised as an online real-time re-mix engine (Prisms), a piece of infinite composition released via a freeware coding platform (YrCodeIsBadAndYouShouldFeelBad) and the short experimental film ‘OSCILLATOR’. Past works include a live soundtrack to the classic sci-fi ‘Silent Running’, sound design for a BBC adaptation of ‘Slaughterhouse Five’ and collaborating on Jean Abreu’s contemporary dance piece ‘Inside’.

They released their most recent album ‘Wild Light’ in October 2013, and as well as continuing to tour extensively, are working on various secret projects for the weird future.

The band have also completed work on soundtrack for galaxy-spanning phenomenon ‘No Man’s Sky’ – a procedural, open-universe space exploration video game scheduled for release on Sony Playstation later in 2016. The game has already received high praise, including awards at the 2014 E3 conference for "Best Original Game" and "Best Independent Game" by a panel of game critics, as well as receiving the "Special Commendation for Innovation" title.

Support: MEEMO COMMA
Meemo Comma is the alias of Brighton born Lara Rix-Martin who previously recorded as part of the Heterotic duo on Planet Mu. She started the female identifying and non-binary label Objects Limited in 2016 with releases from Eva Bowan, Ziúr and JARu (aka Jana Rush). Lara started recording her own solo material in 2015 and released an EP under the Lux E Tenebris moniker in 2016, but now working under the Meemo Comma alias. Her sound is stripped back, dreamlike and evocative with elements of footwork, instrumental grime and drone. Currently working on a new album, due in September, Lara is focusing on self hypnosis and meditation, from a world weary of the avalanche of data.
