Longplayer Legacies – New Commission

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 08.57.18Longplayer Legacies is a concert series hosting three extraordinary composers each responding to Longplayer over three nights in October 2018: Larry Achiampong, whose work explores the intersection between pop culture and the postcolonial position, Laura Cannell, who explores the spaces between ancient and experimental music and FutureSelf, the new project of Vanessa Brown, evolved from her pop background into a multidisciplinary project considering the social sciences through audio-visual experimentation. These concerts will be held at the Lighthouse in London’s Trinity Buoy Wharf (from which Jem Finer’s 1000-year long composition plays continuously) for an intimate audience onsite and a livestream audience hosted by Sound and Music

Curated by Longplayer trustee Ella Finer as a Sound and Music Composer-Curator 2018, these concerts are a response to Longplayer’s ethos of caring for the long term alongside her own work as a producer and curator interested in re-mix, cross-temporal splicing and the politics of doing so.

The idea for these sessions is to ask how sound legacies are produced and who creates them? Who ensures their “preservation” and how? Who knows where to look for these legacies and who feels entitled to creatively and critically attend to these materials?
