'Tributes-Pulse' (65 min, HDCam, Dolby E, color, 2011) is a collaboration between American filmmaker Bill Morrison and Danish composer and percussionist Simon Christensen.
Christensen originally conceived of the project as a tribute to four American composers: Charles Ives (1874-1954), Conlon Nancarrow (1912-1997), Steve Reich (b. 1936), and Trent Reznor (b. 1965). Using exquisitely deteriorating nitrate-based archival film, and an original aerial shot, Morrison weaves a story from the remnants of disparate narratives of the 20th century.
