Fullman, Ellen – “Long String Instrument, The” – [Superior Viaduct]

Ellen Fullman

The same four years I spent in college, Fullman spent developing a sound installation in Eindhoven, Holland. Her instrument consisted of 70-foot-long metallic wires amplified by a wooden resonator box. The music recorded on this album is the result of Fullman and another musician traversing these wires with rosined fingers. The result is fairly enjoyable and challenging, bringing true meaning to the word sound sculpture. On the last track, Fullman plays another creation of hers, the Water Drip Drum, which is an aluminum pan into which water drips and whose position is controlled by a foot pedal. Read the sleeve notes. I envy Fullman her musical education, which was primarily self-taught.
