Longplayer Live

In an attempt to realise a live performance of his thousand year composition (a shortened 1000 minute version) Jem Finer is raising funds in order to buy the 236 Tibetan singing bowls needed for the concert. Interested parties can visit his website here and buy the individual bowls required. Along with having a word of their choice engraved upon the bowl, people who donate will also receive a ticket to the performance. The performance will take place at London's Roundhouse, Chalk Farm, 12 September. In the meantime Longplayer's current version in the form of an installation can be visited at Trinity Buoy Wharf in East London's Docklands.
