Robert Rutman (Berlin, 1931) went to the USA to study art in 1955.
In 1975, he started building steel-metal sculptures to be played with a bow,
like a violin, and founded the U.S. Steel Cello Ensemble.
1939 (Pogus, 1990) documents some of these resonating sculptures and their ghostly drones:
Tabla and buzz chime,
Steel cello and bow chime,
Chant bow chime and horn,
Three bow chimes,
Song of the steel cello.
After a long hiatus, new compositions began to appear on
Music To Sleep By (Tresor, 1998),
Song Of The Steel Cello (Pogus, 1999), that contains the title-track,
Zuuhh Muttie Mum (1999).
