This year, on 21 June, I'll be celebrating the longest day of the year with the inaugural edition of Longplayer Day. I've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to curate proceedings with the wonderful Helen Frosi (see Helen's Soundfjord project here). The day features some extraordinary artists, writers and screenings. Some of those involved include: Steve Beresford, Rosie Bergonzi, John Cage, Angharad Davies, Jem Finer, Cathy Haynes, Charles Hayward, John Latham, Michael Morris, Dominic Murcott, Áine O’Dwyer, Pauline Oliveros, Tim Spooner, Blanca Regina, Dan Richards, Adam Scovell and Robert MacFarlane, Siswå Sukrå, The Study Group, John Tilbury, John White, Richard Wilson (with Ansuman Biswas and Sean Dower).
You can find up to date information about the programme on the Longplayer website here, and a Facebook event page here. The image below is of the limited edition artwork for the day by graphic designer Joe Hales.
