Tributes-Pulse is a requiem for the 20th century - the persistence of a pulse, the contractions of the heart ...

This art movie by American filmmaker Bill Morrison (b. 1965) and Danish composer and percussionist Simon Christensen (b. 1971) explores the theme of "pulse" in both music and film - as a force that runs through life, civilization, and nature. Using evocatively deteriorating archival film, Morrison weaves a story from the remnants of disparate narratives. The four sections Shifting, Multiple, Across and Beat, correspond visually to Water, Earth, Fire and Air as defining elements of ‘the frontier'.

The film can be rented for public screenings and gallery installation (use Enquire button above). Full booking package including film and live ensemble is offered as well.
