surfing on a long wire is a sound installation and performative instrument at the same time. A big shiny Graph fills the space and via light, shadows and reflections, it picks up the shapes of the room to play with it. A long string is stretched through one corner of the space to the pillar which is holding the Graph/ Curve. The E-bow gets the string oscillate in an never ending drone and refers to the idea of "music on a long thin wire" from Alvin Lucier. During the performance the Installation is played like an instrument, an experimental test set-up in between pseudo scientific measures and a esoteric shamanistic procedure.
