A Sonic Pulse illuminates different ways in which D/deaf people connect to and experience electronic music from a visceral, communal and scientific perspective. Through a mishmash of experimental sounds and scenes, the film gets to the heart of how music is a universal language when we feel the vibrations.

Dorothy Allen-Pickard short films such as The Mess and In The Greatness and multimedia shows have won prizes including Best UK New Director, BFI Future Film Festival, Guardian Documentary Award, Open City Doc Best UK Short, Vimeo Staff Picks. She has a particular interest in working with non-professional actors to create semi-autobiographical films that merge documentary and fiction. She recently completed an MA in Directing Fiction at Goldsmiths University.

Antoine Marinot is a multidisciplinary graphic designer based in London. His interest in art began with graffiti, which opened up the world of typography and colour – two elements that are still at the centre of his practice. His work spans from branding, art direction, to editorial and digital design.
