Princeton Sound Kitchen presents new works by Princeton University graduate students and faculty for Ellen Fullman's Long String Instrument. This unique invention is an architecturally-scaled instrument which resonates space utilizing strings suspended wall-to-wall, transforming the venue into a giant musical instrument. Compositions will be performed by Fullman alongside guest artists.
