PULSE, commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society, brings together British/Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova and Scottish film-maker Ruth Paxton to create a new score and film for the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Biennial in 2014. Taking the ideas of ‘pulse’ and ‘place’, this collaboration pairs Tabakova’s rich musical language with Paxton’s bold film-making to create a film that explores the energy and diversity of life in a modern city and the driving forces behind how different societies and cultures mix. This double-bill evening opens with a screening and discussion of PULSE, followed by a special Cheltenham Composer Academy edition of RANTS. RANTS are compelling three-minute opinion pieces delivered on a wide variety of cultural topics, which are then opened up to the room for debate.
