The Sound Source, spnm's bi-monthly experimental music night, returns with Pulse, an evening of subtle beats and rhythms that make you think as well as move, filling the theatre and bar with live performance, DJ sets and video.
International new music soloists Darragh Morgan and keyboard player Mary Dullea take loops and splices back to their roots, weaving mesmerising patterns in minimalist classics by Steve Reich and Philip Glass, composers who have influenced everyone from Kraftwerk to Aphex Twin. Also on the programme are cutting-edge works by contemporary composers from the UK, some written especially for the night, as well as Irish composer Frank Lyons' reflection on Jimi Hendrix's Purple Haze and music by iconic UK minimalist Andrew Poppy.
In the bar Finn Peters will play records that reflect his incredibly eclectic musical tastes. Alongside his DJ career, Peters is one of the finest flautists and alto sax players in the UK, equally at home with jazz, funk, hip-hop, house, classical and Latin, and his band the Finn Peters Finntet has just been nominated for the BBC Jazz Awards 2007.
