About Jem Finer
Jem Finer first collaborated with Artangel on Longplayer, a one-thousand-year-long musical composition that began playing at midnight on 31 December 1999. This collaboration has continued throughout the years marked by events including Longplayer Live 2009, the ongoing Longplayer Conversations series, and, most recently, with the Longplayer Assembly.

Known as an artist, musician and as a mathematician, Jem Finer is also an award-winning composer whose works include Score for Hole in the Ground, in which underground falling water plays on hidden percussive instruments; Landscope, an inverted pylon that detected storms on Jupiter, and The Centre of the Universe, a spiral tower that ‘listened’ to the cosmos. Finer was a founding member of the band The Pogues.
