Longplayer Live 2009

A live performance of a 1000 minute section of Longplayer is currently in the planning stages.

It will be played on a 25 metre wide instrument made up of six concentric circles of Tibetan Singing Bowls.

Based on Jem Finer’s graphic score for 234 bowls and six players, the concert is scheduled to take place at The Roundhouse in Chalk Farm, London, on September 12th 2009. The 1000 minute long concert will start at 08.20 am and finish the following morning at 01.00 am.

In order to fund the building of this instrument and the production of the event, The Longplayer Trust is inviting donations on a bowl-by-bowl basis. When you fund a bowl, it will be engraved with a word of your choice and a premium ticket for the performance will be reserved in your name.
