The world premiere of PULSE opens the Glasgow Short Film Festival. Commissioned by the RPS, PULSE 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.
PULSE is a noir-like expressionistic short film about peril and rescue. Travelling through the streets of Glasgow by the river Clyde to the iconic Grand Central Hotel, music and images capture the diversity of life in a modern city and the driving forces behind how different societies and cultures mix.
