Jem Finer

Jem Finer is an artist, musician and composer. Since studying computer science in the 1970s, he has worked in a variety of fields, including photography, film, experimental and popular music and installation. His 1000 year long musical composition, Longplayer, represents a convergence of many of his concerns, particularly those relating to systems, sustainability, long-durational processes and extremes of scale in both time and space.

Recent music includes the release crowpop. hrdy grdy, an album of hurdy gurdy and minimal electronics, will be released by Thanet Tape Centre on 13th January 2022.

He is currently working on a number of new projects and collaborations.


“Rebecca Lee is a storyteller. On her newest album as Bredbeddle, she weaves a sprawling, engaging narrative across four pieces in roughly two hours. Each of the four tracks on Steps on the Turning Year wind through countless sonic avenues, taking unexpected twists and turns to the point that it’s impossible to know where Lee will go from minute to minute.… It’s the sound of discovery and finding yourself within the free-flowing chaos of all that surrounds us. Lee bends it through a skewed prism, giving interesting and often poignant new perspectives on recognizable sounds, breathing a new essence into the familiar.”
Foxy Digitalis.

Arianne Churchman

Arianne Churchman is an artist from Suffolk, East Anglia. Her practice concerns British Folklore and traverses performance, film, sound, fabric works and objects. Recently she has been developing a Dream Horse Cult, whereby Suffolk Horselore is reimagined into strange new feminist collective histories and new psychedelic dreamscapes. She holds an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art and a BA from the University of Reading. She has exhibited internationally and has had solo presentations at Xero, Kline and Coma, London; Nottingham Castle, Nottingham; and Metal; Peterborough.
