Field Of View Extended Dakotalapse Video Featuring My Music

Field Of View – 4K Ultra HD Timelapse

Field Of View is the amazing new timelapse video from Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse which you can watch above. Randy describes some of his photography below:

Field Of View is a compilation of timelapse I have shot in the last year. The first shot of the sunset supercell was done on July 23, 2015. That storm dropped multiple Tornadoes in eastern South Dakota, I was shooting it from central SD. I shot timelapse of that same storm for almost 4 hours into the night. Other locations in the sequences are Aurora in central, western South Dakota and the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. The Red Desert in Wyoming, Badlands and Buffalo Gap National Grasslands area of South Dakota. Bighorn and Teton Mountain areas in Wyoming.”

There’s also an extended 30+ minute version of the video available in 1080p featuring my atmospheric ambient music tracks Halo’s Edge and Orbital Drift which you can get directly from Dakotalapse here:

As with all of Randy’s work, the photography is stunning and it makes for a beautifully calming video to watch, so I highly recommend supporting Randy by purchasing the full version!

Dakotalapse Full Length Time Lapse ‘Trails End’ Featuring My Music

Trails End – 4K Ultra HD

This is the latest time lapse film from photographer Randy Halverson at dakotalapse.com called Trails End. It’s a video compilation of some of Randy’s best time lapse photography from 2014.

The main music used in the clip above isn’t mine (although the intro/ending title music is my track Lightscape from my Royalty Free Vol.8 Collection) but he also has a full length version that runs to 30+ minutes long which features my music throughout the entire video.

I have to say that the photography in the 30 minute feature is absolutely mesmerizing and I’m honoured that my music is featured in this beautiful film. It’s well worth 30 minutes of your time to see some of the incredible photography in this video. You can download the full version shot in 4k Ultra HD from Randy’s website here:

Randy has also used lots more of my music in his previous time lapse video work which you can see here on my site.

New Dakotalapse Short Time Lapse Clip Catches Satellites

Final Boost Stage of GSSAP and ANGELS satellites – 4K UHD

This short 1 minute time lapse clip from Randy Halverson is a pretty enough video to watch on its own merits. It’s even more captivating when you look closer and see that Randy managed to capture (by chance) 2 passing satellites in the frames of his film. The GSSAP and ANGELS satellites had launched on July 28th at 7:28 EDT and can be seen within the video above.

The background music is New World Dawn from volume 8 of my royalty free music collection Deep Space Ambient.

Short Time Lapse Clip From Dakotalapse Featuring My Ambient Music

Sprites, Gravity Waves and Airglow

Here’s a new short but hypnotic time lapse video clip from photographer Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse featuring a brief extract from my atmospheric royalty free ambient space music collection. Hear more of my work in Randy’s previous videos here.

“On August 20th, 2014 I timelapsed a storm over central South Dakota with multiple cameras. I left for Wyoming without looking at most of the frames. I saw a post by Tom Warner about Sprites he caught on the same storm. Sprites are large scale electrical discharges that occur high above clouds.When I got back I went through the frames and found 7 with Sprites in them. The Sprites are only 1 frame each, so they will be a quick flash of red near the right side above the storm. The green Airglow is rippled by Gravity Waves, some faint Aurora moves in towards the end of the sequences, on the right side before the clouds cover it up.”

Promo Video For Atmospheric Ambient Music: Frozen White Light

Ambient Space Music: Frozen White Light by Simon Wilkinson

Frozen White Light by Simon WilkinsonHere’s the promo video for my latest atmospheric ambient music track Frozen White Light which features a short extract from the full length track (the full track is over 30 minutes long) and is available to buy and license for your own films and documentaries from my website here.

The track is a long and slow moving ambient piece of music with a peaceful atmospheric and hypnotic feel, ideal as musical background for films, documentaries, time lapse films, art installations and exhibitions etc. (as heard in the soundtrack to the full length Dakotalapse time lapse film Horizons by Randy Halverson). Due to its long and unobtrusive nature, it can also be used as calming background music for studying, writing, relaxation, meditation, yoga etc.

When I was working on the track, it was usually in the small hours of the morning and my 1 year old daughter (who’s always been a problem sleeper) would often start her nightly routine of waking up crying. I noticed that when I went to comfort her and brought her into the studio while the track was playing, she would immediately calm down and become transfixed with the music and the video. After about 10 minutes of sitting there listening quietly on my lap, she would always fall back asleep, which amazed us because we’d tried everything up until that point. So it could also work as sleep therapy if you or your children have problems sleeping!
