Behind the scenes of 'Wild Light'...

A continually groundbreaking group, 65daysofstatic returned last year with new album 'Wild Light'.

Moving forward once more, the record was followed by some special shows, with 65daysofstatic once more raising temperatures with their squalid electronics.

Now the Sheffield band have pieced together a short film. 'Oscillator' is a glimpse into the band's working methods, as 65daysofstatic explain:

"Our sixth album, Wild Light was released last year and was only ever the more coherent surface elements of a semi-explored planet, the tip of the iceberg if you like. That's still out there in various forms, discs of preserved oil and torrent files and so on. OSCILLATOR is a 20 minute film we made, a less-diluted collection of off-cuts and lost edits; late night smartphone videos and unused music; real-time noise experiments using diegetic audio on a long stretch of European motorway; code-based sound generators and unmapped kinect territories, as well as footage from the dead cities and exceptional states of 2013's 'Sleepwalk City' A/V installation."

"Much of 65's current behind-the-scenes work is based around massive secrets that we can't talk about yet, but before we go under the radar completely we're taking Wild Light out on the road across Europe this summer. These are potentially the last shows for a while."
