Hey, friends – got something extra cool to tell y’all about…
On Friday, October 1, at Wood Street Galleries, artist, composer, and musician Jem Finer presents the world premier of “Shortplayer” a new live setting of his world-renowned 1,000-year-long musical artwork Longplayer. Along with a host of Pittsburgh’s finest musicians, the London-based Finer celebrates Pittsburgh’s opening of the first Longplayer listening post in the Eastern U.S. with the performance of a new composition based on the principles of Longplayer.
Jem Finer is considered a unique voice in exploring issues combining science, technology, and philosophy such as “deep time” through sound installation, autonomous technology, and astronomical sculpture. He has been artist-in-residence at Oxford University’s department of Astrophysics and in 2005 won the PRS Foundation New Music Award for “Score for a Hole in the Ground,” and is songwriter and co-founder of famed Irish-punk band The Pogues.
“This is seriously different stuff: minimalist time-based avant-garde composition.” Juddy
