Constructing a Musical Phrase from the Ground Up

Ellen Fullman will give a presentation on the aesthetic and technical development of her work with video footage dating back to 1980. She will discuss influences and introduce her lecture with projects by her artist father that laid the foundation for her studio practice. Fullman will discuss her understanding of a harmonic “space” in which sympathetic resonances “trigger” modulation of the upper partial tones.

She will share excerpts from her piece The Unlearning, 21 songs for cello, violin and two voices inspired by Goya's Disasters of War etchings as well as her research into mapping extended overtones and just tunings on the cello in her collaboration with Ellen Fullman.
