      '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.

          Digital adaptation of the "prepared piano" ways of playing as first imagined by Henry Cowell and developped by John Cage in "Sonatas & interludes for prepared piano" (which aesthetic result is very close to his compositions for percussion quartet and Balinese gamelans) – using two TENORI-ON(s) and various filters. N.B.- These rehearsals are part of a series of solo pieces inspired by John Cage's experiments for prepared piano and Colon Nancarrow works for mechanical piano.
