New No Man's Sky Performance from 65daysofstatic

No Man’s Sky is having a bit of a renaissance here in early 2017. More people seem to be picking it up on sale and discovering a much fuller game, closer to (though still far from) the slick E3 trailers and teasers that wowed them over the last three years. To coincide with the recent “Pathfinder” update, Laced Records and 65daysofstatic — the instrumental post/math-rock band who created the game’s soundtrack — have released an exclusive live performance music video. The video offers three tracks from the game in new arrangements that 65daysofstatic’s Paul Wolinski says won’t be heard again.

“We are in a studio environment in this video. Everything wired up to play just these specific songs. This provided an opportunity to create a system where every performance of a track would be unique. This was one of the first attempts at rethinking how to approach performing music that was written to be non-linear and lend itself to generative, infinite soundscapes rather than fixed compositions.”

He has a lot more to say about the future of musical performance — one where “the listener is as vital as the musician” — in this PlayStation UK blog post. Alongside the video release, Laced Records is running a 15% Off sale on all of their No Man’s Sky soundtrack offerings. That includes their immense 4-LP vinyl box set, 2-disc CD album and the digital version of the soundtrack.
