Ellen Fullman on Austin Morning Magazine (1985)

Oh the things you find online! The convergence of two streams of thought. Texas is a strange and remarkable place, which seems to support avant-garde music in ways you’d never expect, and proof that popular culture’s willingness to engage with unfamiliar sounds and ideas is in decline. It seems shocking and improbable that the wonderful Ellen Fullman would have been invited to perform on a morning television show – but here is, from the archives of 1985. Clocking in at a stunning 10 minutes, a shocking artifact from another time. If you missed my earlier post of films documenting Fullman’s work, you can check it out here.
