Musical Performance by Ellen Fullman
December 4, 2009; 7:30 p.m.; Gallery BRSVP on Facebook
In 1981, composer Ellen Fullman invented the Long String Instrument, an installation of dozens of wires fifty feet or more in length, played with rosined fingers. The instrument explores natural tunings based on the overtone series and the physics of vibrating strings. Fullman will perform recent compositions for solo and ensemble on wires stretched across the gallery, turning the museum itself into a resonating instrument.
Compositions for Long String Instrument with guests Theresa Wong, Emily Packard, Gretchen Jude, and Dave Douglas. Programmed by musician and producer Sarah Cahill.
