Long Single String

by E42.A8



Recorded at E42.A8, july 2015, on the first and second days after the long string instrument was built. Steel wire about 20ft, e-bowed, plucked or hit with various sticks, amplified with a guitar pick-up. Line and mostly ambient takes with a Zoom H4n.

You can hear SD, PP, LD, SP, some playing the string, some playing in the yard. Additional sounds arise from the barn : metal, wood, wind, electric hum, tires on concrete highway about 1 mile further, maybe planes on their way from or to other places. Oh, and yes, ride cymbal at the end. For some of these you’ll need headphones. For others, not.
