Pulse, judged best classical album in the 2002 Tui Awards, is Wellington composer Jack Body's exploration, through transcription, of music from a variety of countries including China, Bulgaria and Indonesia. "I believe musical composition should be the exploration of new worlds of aural sensibility. This is why I 'travel' a great deal, musically speaking, even when at home, by listening obsessively to recordings of the music of other cultures."
One CD contains the works, the other the original music that has been the subject of transcription.
