GSFF presents


Part of the Glasgow Short Film Festival

Thu 13 Feb 2014 | 8.30pm doors | 9pm start (60 mins) | £8 + booking fee

The Glasgow Short Film Festival visits The Arches for the world premiere of PULSE, a dramatic collaboration between Grammy-nominated British/Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova and Scottish film-maker Ruth Paxton.

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, the collaboration pairs Tabakova’s rich musical language with Paxton’s bold film-making to explore the energy and diversity of life in a modern city and the driving forces behind how different societies and cultures mix. Tabakova’s score for piano, percussion and gamelan will be performed live, along with performances of other original compositions.

PULSE is commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society, as part of the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music Biennial in 2014. Made in association with Edge City Films.
