five Long wires tensioned throughout the room extend from a central point on the floor. The wires produce spectral tone when played by an operator, who wears rubber gloves to increase friction and ‘excite’ the instrument through consistent movement. The strings not only produce sound, but also fragment and cut the space of the room into sections that must be carefully navigated by stepping over and ducking under. The wires also connect to the network of signals used to trigger electronic samples in Dylan Martorell’s ‘Drum Plough’.
