Product details

There were two initial points of inspiration behind the composition of this piece. Firstly, I was interested in writing a work that made use of a constant pulse. This pulse continues throughout most of the composition, though at different speeds for different sections. Hence the "pulse" in the title.
Secondly, the four instrumentalists either work together as a team, or else in opposition. Just as a pair of magnets attract or repulse one another, so the musicians come together or move apart. This particularly applies to the pianists working in opposition to the percussionists.
Pulse Magnet contains three sections. The opening and closing sections are energetic in character, relentlessly bubbling or pounding along. The middle section is more quiet and reserved in tone.
