A concert featuring a 25 metre wide instrument, made up of six concentric circles of Tibetan singing bowls, used to play a 1000-minute section of a 1000-year long piece of music conceived by artist, composer, musician Jem Finer and commissioned by Artangel. It began playing at midnight on the 31st of December 1999, and continues to play, without repetition, until the last moment of 2999. The piece represents a convergence of Finer's interests in systems, long-durational processes and extremes of scale in both time and space and is currently configured in digital form, playing at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London and listening posts in Greenwich and Sydney. The audience can move from the performance space to a discussion space, where pairs of speakers debate ideas about concepts from long-term thinking and sustainability to 'deep time'.
