ELLEN FULLMAN

IN THE SEA

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: 2xLPs
Cata No: SV174
Barcode: 857661008742
Ellen Fullman began developing The Long String
Instrument in her St. Paul, Minnesota studio in 1980
and moved to Brooklyn the following year. Inspired by
composer and instrument builder Harry Partch, Fullman’s
large-scale work creates droning, organ-like overtones
that are as unique in the world of sound as her vision of the
instrument itself.
Along with her 1985 debut album—appropriately titled
The Long String Instrument—Fullman’s only output in the
1980s would be two self-released cassettes, In The Sea and
Work For Four Players And 90 Strings, recorded in 1987
at an unfinished office tower in Austin, Texas. This double
LP collection features music from both cassettes as well as
a previously unreleased piece from 1988 at De Fabriek in
Den Bosch, Holland.
Ethereal and exquisitely paced, these rare recordings
capture minimalism’s quiet radiance. Within a musical
landscape that has seen the rise of contemporary drone
practitioners like Ellen Arkbro and Kali Malone, Fullman
is sure to find a legion of fans.
Superior Viaduct is honored to present this long overdue
archival release that marks a particularly vibrant period of
Fullman’s pioneering and timeless work.
