It was broadcast live for severl days.almost put the raido statio out of business.Ellen Fullman has been playing the Long String Instrumet for years ,including perfromances with Kronos String Quartet

Looks as if it was Alvin Lucier rather than Gene Tyrrany who did music on a long thin wire...

there are only three ideas in art - its how you do it that counts. Discovered Alvin Lucier and Ellen Fullman after setting this up - it's not really related to either, except for having long wires to play on. It doesn't make a tone on it's own - but even a slight breeze will nudge the wire/pickup/amplifier/speaker combination into a shifting feedback. This has a subtley worthy of a musical instrument rather than a concept, with a huge dynamic and expressive range.
