Ellen Fullman has been developing the Long String Instrument, an installation of dozens of wires fifty feet or more in length, tuned in Just Intonation, and bowed with rosin coated fingers, for nearly 30 years. Fullman has developed a unique notation system to choreograph the performers movements, exploring sonic events that occur at specific nodal point locations along the string-length of the instrument. Her compositions, collaborations, and improvisations also explore the acoustics of large resonant spaces. She has recorded extensively with this unusual instrument and has collaborated with figures such as composer Pauline Oliveros, choreographer Deborah Hay, the Kronos Quartet, and Keiji Haino.

With the support of her 2015 FCA grant, Fullman performed Harbors at the Click Festival at the Kulturvaerftet in Elsinore, Denmark, a shipyard turned art center, and Transformer Station, Cleveland; Coffee County Tennessee at Sangerrunde Hall in Austin; The Watch, reprise in the London Contemporary Music Festival at University of Westminsters Ambika P3; and Past The Angels for an ensemble of five, at The Lab in San Francisco. Additionally, Fullman composed Cello Matrix, using cello harmonics and pressed notes at the locations of harmonics.

Prior to her Grants to Artists award, Fullman was the recipient of a Meet the Composer grant, a Readers Digest Consortium Commission (1993), an Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission Fellowship (1999), a DAAD Berlin Artist-in-Residence (2000), a Japan/U.S. Friendship Commission/National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship (2007), and two Center for Cultural Innovation Grants (2008, 2013).

Fullman received her B.F.A. in Sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute in 1979 and serves on the faculty in the department of music and sound at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College.
