LUCIER, ALVIN: Music on a long thin wire
One of the classic long wire pieces. Essentially this is a one string aolian harp (with active but steady state oscillation applied to it) - magnetically amplified (like an electric guitar). Slowly modulating pure tones, drones, silences, harmonics. Tuned to play itself by reacting to slight changes in its environment.
