Jem Finer is a founding member of The Pogues as well as an artist, composer and musician with a background in mathematics and computer science dating back to the ICL 1900 mainframe computers of the early 1970s. An enduring fascination with deep time and space, self-organising systems and long-durational processes has been the impetus behind much of his work including his Artangel commission, Longplayer, a thousand-year-long musical composition playing since the last moments of 1999 and Score For a Hole In the Ground, a permanent, self-sustaining musical installation in a forest in Kent, which relies only on gravity and the elements to be audible. He uses the term “post-digital” to describe his own return to a direct relationship with materials and landscape – as opposed to one mediated via a screen.
