'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.

Blu-Ray Review: "Tributes - Pulse"
by Anthony Nield
The Digital Fix, 9/4/11

"The past is past, whether it be the once glorious signifiers of an industrial age or the film stock which captured them - all that remains are crumbling/deteriorating remnants. The juxtaposition is strangely moving and makes for a fitting end. In this respect Morrison’s requiem can count itself a successful one. "
