Pulse has been inspired by the Lovell Telescope and the research the team carries out at Jodrell Bank, constantly scanning the skies, filtering whispers from outer space, extracting the inaccessible information hidden amongst the dark matter and the white noise.

The work is part of a new body of work commissioned by Macclesfield Barnaby Festival in association with Jodrell Bank. The pulsar recordings in the video have been provided by the Pulsar Group of the Jodrell bank Centre for Astrophysics.
