A Symphony to Last a Thousand Years

Can you imagine what the world will be like in 1,000 years? Yeah, neither can we. But one man has created a piece of music that will still be playing by the end of the next millennium. Composer Jem Finer was always intrigued by the concept of time. So in the year 2000, he decided to commemorate the new millennium by writing “Longplayer”—an everlasting piece of music that repeats every 1,000 years. While Finer won't be around in 2999 when the symphony resets, his hope is that it will unite a community of listeners across generations—all connected by the soothing sounds of singing bowls.
