Music on a Long Thin Wire is a musical piece by Alvin Lucier conceived in 1977. In his own words (1992): "Music on a Long Thin Wire is constructed as follows: the wire is extended across a large room, clamped to tables at both ends. The ends of the wire are connected to the loudspeaker terminals of a power amplifier placed under one of the tables. A sine wave oscillator is connected to the amplifier

This piece, like Lucier's "I Am Sitting in a Room", is another new music classic. The initial idea originated in 1977 when the composer, working with physicist John Trefny, constructed a modern version of the Pythagorean monochord. A magnet is placed over the wire at one end, and contact microphones attached to wooden bridges pick up the sound of the wire and feed it to a sound system that plays throughout the space. The wire plays itself: all changes in volume, timbre, harmonic structure, rhythmic and cyclic patterning are affected by the tuning of the oscillator, fatique, air currents, heat and cooling, subtle vibrations from human movement, etc.

I first got the idea for "Music on a Long Thin Wire" in 1977. Physicist John Trefny and I were teaching a course on musical acoustics at Wesleyan and had set up a modern version of the Pythagorean monochord. We extended a short metal wire across a laboratory table and placed an electromagnet over one end of it. An audio oscillator drove the wire
