String Theory
To quote from String Theory''s proposal:
"We've invited some new people to join us and are planning to do a nice long improvised piece. We will set up several long string installations as part of the performance. A group of dancers and musicians will perform an improvised piece based on a projected video score."
Join String Theory, a professional ensemble group, for a little experimentation and risk taking. Imagine a 40,000 sq ft harp.

from their website:
"String Theory's Long-string Harp installations run from the resonating chamber and attach to existing architecture or structure, and allow sound to come off of the bridge of the instrument. The way these instruments work is through a vibration called a compression wave. This is a longitudinal vibration that occurs on the molecular level, and is quite different than a more common elliptical vibration that is utilized by guitar, cello, and piano among many other instruments. A cotton glove coated with rosin dust grasps the brass wire and strokes lengthwise pushing the molecules as they compress up the length of the string to the tuning block. The tuning blocks prevent the vibration from continuing up the string, and therefore dictate the pitch of each string; the further away the block is, the lower the pitch of the note. Each string has its own fixed note, and String Theory almost always chooses to tune their long-string Harps to a C chromatic scale."
