“The Long String Instrument is an installation that I really have been working on my entire adult life,” Ms. Fullman said by phone recently. “Starting from something that was very raw: just one string, and more of a noisy thing. But I saw potential for it in musical tone.” 

Read "A Composer and Her (Very) Long String Instrument" in The New York Times and listen to Fullman's 1985 performance with the Long String Instrument at Roulette.
