ELLEN FULLMAN

THE LONG STRING INSTRUMENT

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV085
Barcode: 857176003850
Ellen Fullman began developing her installation The Long
String Instrument in 1981, in search of tonalities that could
not be achieved with traditional instruments. This largescale
work consists of 70-foot-long metallic wires, anchored
by a wooden resonator, across which the performer
moves backwards and forwards with rosin-covered fingers.
The overall effect has been rightfully compared to the experience
of standing inside an enormous grand piano.
Recorded during Fullman’s 1985 residency at Het Apollohuis
in Eindhoven, Holland, The Long String Instrument
album is the first document of her acoustic explorations.
“Woven Processional,” which features Fullman alongside
artist Arnold Dreyblatt, conjures an enchanting drone
from the elongated strings and dissolves into organ-like
overtones and otherworldly textures. Several tracks bring
to life another Fullman invention, The Water Drip Drum,
constructed from water dripping into an amplified aluminum
pan and manipulated by foot pedal.
Thirty years since its initial release, Ellen Fullman’s
debut LP remains a major contribution to the histories of
sound sculpture and minimalist composition. This firsttime
reissue is mastered from the original analog tapes and
recommended for fans of Pauline Oliveros, Charlemagne
Palestine and Harry Bertoia.
