By adjusting the variables that control Longplayer, new compositions can be created that might last only a very short time. Composer-curator Emma Welton, with musicians from the University of Exeter, realises one of these compositions in a live setting. Followed by Longplayer artist Jem Finer in conversation with sound artist and broadcaster Alice Armstrong.
A panel of scientists, academics and artists (including Longplayer artist Jem Finer) meet to consider creative responses to space, time, society and environment: matters with scale greater than a human lifetime. Hosted by artist and curator Alex Murdin.
Longplayer is a 1000-year-long musical composition. It began playing at midnight on 31 December 1999, and will continue to play without repetition until the last moment of 2999. Conceived and composed by Jem Finer, it can be heard online; through an app; and at listening posts around the world.
