Listen Playlist Show 10 : Jem Finer Wednesday 16th September 2020
Jem Finer is an artist, composer and musician with a background in mathematics and computer science. An enduring fascination with deep time and space, self-organising systems and long-durational processes has been the impetus behind much of his work including his Artangel commission Long Player, for singing bowls, famously the longest non-repeating piece of music ever composed. It has been playing continuously since the first moments of the millennium, performed by computers around the world.

Jem Finer was unique in answering this request and chose 4 varied and fascinating ‘silences’, two of which are included in this programme.
