Ellen Fullman

Ellen Fullman, who has worked with Barn Owl and released a split LP with Eleh, recently unveiled her debut full-length, Through Glass Panes, on Important. “Flowers,” an adaptation from Stratified Bands: Last Kind Words, was originally composed for The Kronos Quartet and features Fullman’s “Long String Instrument” (see above), which is, according to Important, “an installation of dozens of wires fifty feet or more in length, tuned in Just Intonation and ‘bowed’ with rosin coated fingers.” Hope she’s up for giving some private Long String Instrument lessons, because I’m about to IM her.
