French progressive rock band whose influences include Pink Floyd and King Crimson, plus classical musicians such as Gustav Mahler. During the early 1980s, the group performed and composed the music for a Franco‑Austrian musical theatre production. Their most recent album is Memory Ashes

BAND HISTORY
Pulsar is the first French band to have signed with an English label Kingdom Records. The band recorded and published their first album Pollen in 1974. In 1975, Philippe Roman left the band. The following year, the group released their next albums The Strands Of The Future and Halloween, with new bassist Michel Masson. In the early eighties, together with director Bruno Carlucci, in musical theatre, Pulsar adapted a short story by Austrian novelist Peter Handke: "Bienvenue Au Conseil D'Administration" (1981). The band reconvened in 1989, publishing Görlitz. The group's most recent album is Memory Ashes, produced by Cypress Music.

From 1974 to 1989, their albums were released by CBS. Later, they were released by Musea, a French label which had bought the distribution rights.
In 2008, Goldmine Magazine listed Halloween among the top 25 albums of progressive rock.
