24 leading thinkers converge in a non-stop 12-hour conversation relay, live online on Saturday 26 September, 10:00 – 22:00 BST.
The Longplayer Assembly marks the twentieth anniversary of Jem Finer’s Longplayer – a continuous piece of music commissioned by Artangel that began playing at the turn of the millennium, with a duration of 1000 years. Embracing the essence of Longplayer as a contemplation of time, the Longplayer Assembly echoes this continuity through its convergence of 24 participants, from around the world, whose individual specialist work embodies long term thought. Each speaker will converse in turn, passing the virtual baton every 30 minutes in a non-stop 12-hour live relay.
Presented in association with London Review of Books. Supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust.
