Synch Pulse – No. 8: Cars and Motoring

Presented by Ian Helliwell

The motor car continues to make a fundamental impact on society. Of great benefit in opening up the freedom to travel long distances and carry passengers – while simultaneously a scourge in its shaping of the urban environment to suit motorists, and the cause of a massive death toll in road accidents – the joys and pitfalls of motoring are explored in this car driven, turbocharged programme of left field short films.


Dedicated to screening short experimental films, Synch Pulse features a themed selection delving into the archives to show vintage and contemporary work, with a strong emphasis on electronic and experimental music soundtracks. Designed as a free entry, monthly get-together for the uninitiated as well as devotees of underground movies and alternative sounds, it is compiled and presented by Brighton based artist-filmmaker and electronic music composer, Ian Helliwell.

Carefully assembled, each Synch Pulse programme will include local and international avant-garde shorts from past and present to explore a specific theme as represented through experimental film, animation and documentary, often with unusual electronic soundtracks. The hope is to create an ongoing series of relaxed short film evenings – plus occasional performances and discussions – to create a nexus for independent, left field movies. Future themed programmes will cover: architecture; railways; cities; sound visualization; space flight; world’s fairs; collage; analogue synthesizers; time; and synthetic sound.
