Longplayer is a piece of music that is designed to last for one thousand years. It started to play on 1 January 2000 and if all goes to plan will continue without repetition until 31 December 2999, at which point it will restart at the beginning.

This gives a large number of variations, which, when played consecutively, gives a total runtime of 1000 years.

A self-taught pianist from the age of 7, Dustin O'Halloran's personal histories give us some clue to the thickly-woven tapestries of his music: he has lived in LA (where he studied art at Santa Monica College and formed the much-adored Devics with Sara Lov), Italy (in the depths of rural Emilia Romagna) and Berlin.
