Composer Ellen Fullman has spent the past 40 years developing and exploring the Long String Instrument, a sui generis room-sized installation capable of creating a galaxy of tones and overtones. In this episode, she discusses the influence of traditional Ainu music, Central African polyphony, and composer Pauline Oliveros.

Essential Tremors is produced by Matt Byars and Lee Gardner and distributed by WYPR.
