Ellen Fullman

Originally, Ellen Fullman, an experimental Memphis-born American composer, instrument builder and performer, thought she’d become a visual artist. Fullman, who kicks off the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Performing Arts Series with concerts tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday night at the Transformer Station in Ohio City, hoped to follow in her father’s footsteps. She’s certainly ventured from the visual art world and is now known for her Long String Instrument. An installation of dozens of wires 50 feet or longer tuned in Just Intonation and “bowed” with rosin-coated fingers, it produces a variety of other worldly and exotic sounds that resemble classical violin or an entire string section for that matter. For these shows, she’ll perform a piece that she co-composed with cellist Theresa Wong. Outside of giving a lecture at Oberlin about three years ago, Fullman has never been to Northeast Ohio, so the Transformer Station concerts will mark her debut as a performer. The concerts take place at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $25. (Niesel)
