Numerical experiments on compressible magnetoconvection reveal a new type of periodic oscillation, associated with alternating streaming motion. Analogous behaviour in a Boussinesq fluid is constrained by extra symmetry. A low-order model confirms that these pulsating waves appear via a pitchfork-Hopf-gluing bifurcation sequence from the steady state.
