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. A cinema poem set in central Glasgow which looks at how mental illness can affect lives, PULSE follows two strangers who share a brief yet profound exchange that evokes sympathy, understanding, recognition and hope.
