“My Pulse” is a song taken from Peter Hammill’s 1983 album Loops & Reels, a cassette released on Hammill’s own label (and studio) Sofa Sound. Hammill was a founding member of the English progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator along with Hugh Banton, Guy Evans, and Chris Judge Smith. The band has changed lineups and experienced several hiatuses over the years, most notably between 1978 and 2005. The band is still releasing music regularly; earlier this year, they released ALT. Hammill has had an extremely active musical career spanning several decades and genres, releasing some 35 solo studio albums, in addition to 13 VDGG albums and even more live albums. Today’s song was also used in a ballet by Nicolas Dixon, performed at London’s Riverside Studios.
