String Theory: Ellen Fullman and Brett Larner

Nov 18, 2005

Concert, Performance


Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


8:00 p.m.


This was the third event of the String Theory: The Future of the Stringed Instrument concert series.

Ellen Fullman created, experimented, and performed with a musical instrument with one hundred wires strung over fifty feet. By stroking the strings with rosin-covered hands and walking along its length, she induced sounds with textures and endurance that approached infinity.

Composer and koto virtuoso Brett Larner and his ensemble of seven guitarists plucking, fretting, bowing and hammering steel strings; performed the haunting and delicate composition “/ m-7 / 21-1 /”.

Presented in partnership with LIVE Biennale.
