New Dakotalapse Time Lapse Video Temporal Distortion Featuring My Music

Temporal Distortion

Here’s the latest stunning time lapse film from Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse called Temporal Distortion. The online clip above features an awesome original custom score written especially for the piece by acclaimed composer Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Eureka etc.)

There is also a longer extended version of the film (over 23 minutes) available to download from the Dakotalapse website here which uses all my music including 2 new pieces written especially for it, as well as other music from my royalty free collections. Below is a short collection of excerpts from the extended film using one of the tracks I wrote for it called Shadowland (the full track is over 8 mins):

The film incorporates stunning time lapse footage of the Milky Way, Aurora and other night time lapse scenes. There is no CGI -- what you see is real, but you can’t see it this way with the naked eye. It is the result of 20-30 second exposures, edited together over many hours to produce the time lapse. This allows you to see the Milky Way, Aurora and other phenomena, in a way you wouldn’t normally see them. See more of Randy’s phenomenal photography and films at

The new tracks written for the extended cut are culled Shadowland and Soma and available to download from my store:

New Dakotalapse Time Lapse Video Featuring My Music Tempest

Here’s another new time lapse video from Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse which I provided a new custom scored piece of music and sound effects for. The video is called Tempest Milky Way and my track is called, suitably enough, Tempest.  This is another stunning piece of astronomy time lapse footage shot in South Dakota from June-August 2011.

Tempest by Simon WilkinsonTempest is a dramatic orchestral piece which moves through rising chord progressions of spiccato strings, horns and double bass to build to an atmospheric climax.

The music is available as an mp3 download from my music store (with or without the wind, thunder & lightning SFX). It can also be licensed instantly at low cost for use in your own videos and trailers.
