Biography

Barn Owl & The Infinite Strings Ensemble is a full length collaboration between Ellen Fullman, Theresa Wong, and Barn Owl produced by The Norman Conquest. Barn Owl’s extended s and Theresa and The Norman Conquest’s strings are the perfect accompaniment to Fullman’s Long Stringed Instrument; a product of her own invention.

In 1981 Ellen Fullman began developing the Long String Instrument, an installation of dozens of wires fifty feet or more in length, tuned in Just Intonation and “bowed” with rosin coated fingers. Fullman has developed a unique notation system to choreograph the performer’s movements, exploring sonic events that occur at specific nodal point locations along the string-length of the instrument. She has recorded extensively with this unusual instrument and has collaborated with such luminary figures as composer Pauline Oliveros, choreographer Deborah Hay, The Kronos Quartet, and Keiji Haino (灰野敬二).

Barn Owl are Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras. Looking over America from their nest in San Francisco the pair stretch out hazy, devotional drones.
