A MUSICAL COMPOSITION WHICH STARTED IN 1999 AND WILL LAST UNTIL 2999 - 'LONGPLAYER'

MUST KNOW - MUST VISIT !


Longplayer is a one thousand year long musical composition. It began playing at midnight on the 31st of December 1999, and will continue to play without repetition until the last moment of 2999, at which point it will complete its cycle and begin again. Conceived and composed by Jem Finer, it was originally produced as an Artangel commission, and is now in the care of the Longplayer Trust.


Longplayer can be heard in the lighthouse at Trinity Buoy Wharf, LONDON where it has been playing since it began.

The Longplayer installation, running since the 31st December 1999, is situated inside the 19th century lighthouse at Trinity Buoy Wharf.


In addition to the listening post, 234 singing bowls, used as a part of the 66-foot-wide orchestral instrument to perform Longplayer Live, are on display. The steel structure, designed by Ingrid Hu, was commissioned to display and store the bowls and was installed in autumn 2012. Each tier of the structure, containing 39 bowls positioned sequentially, corresponds to one of the six concentric rings of the Longplayer Live instrument.
