Longplayer Live : 1000 seconds from Longplayer on Vimeo.

The Long Now Foundation is bringing UK artist Jem Finer’s Longplayer to San Francisco for a rare 1,000 minute performance of his 1,000 year-long composition. Longplayer has been playing continually at listening posts around the world since the beginning of the millennium. For 1,000 minutes this October 16th it will be performed live by 18 musicians on a custom-built instrument in YBCA’s Forum.

Longplayer will be presented with the Long Conversation, an epic relay of one-to-one conversations among some of the Bay Area’s most interesting minds. Interpreting the Long Conversation in real time will be a data visualization performance by Sosolimited; an art and technology studio out of M.I.T.

Tickets are good for all parts of the event; the 6 hour Long Conversation, performance by Sosolimited and the 1,000 minute Longplayer performance. Members of partner organizations receive one free ticket.
