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.”

Ambient Space Music: Birth Of A Distant Star by Simon Wilkinson

Today I’ve released a new ambient space music track called Birth Of A Distant Star. The track is a 10 minute atmospheric instrumental ambient piece based around themes of star births, origins of the galaxy, space travel and epic interstellar imagery.

Full of atmospheric ambient textures and harmonically rich floating synth layers, the instrumental track would make ideal background music for space documentaries and feature films, astronomy time lapse films, art films, photo galleries or any video that calls for ethereal and highly textural audio, music and sound design.

The track is available to download and license here for use in your own films and videos and also on all popular music download sites like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc.
