The musician Jem Finer
(formerly of The Pogues) has created a musical composition, The LongPlayer
, that will play, without repetition, for a thousand years (made with SuperCollider
). It is currently playing live at a London lighthouse.

is another example of a generative art piece, in this case one that was set to run for eight years. These are both examples of Generative Art, Art generated by rules.
