    New Sounds
  • Strings and Drones

    For this New Sounds, listen to a combination of strings and drones from the likes of American composer Ellen Fullman, the South Indian-born double violinist known as Shankar, (formerly L. Shankar, not to be confused with the late Ravi Shankar), along with Maya Beiser and Kayhan Kalhor.  Ellen Fullman is best known for her work with the long-string instrument (LSI), a curious way of using physics and acoustics to make music.  The LSI is an array of bronze wires (maybe 20 meters or more in length) strung near waist height across a performance space and played by rubbing rosined fingertips while walking between banks of strings.  The overtones of the strings as well as the room interact and make the giant instrument.
