Time Lapse Video Surreal Journey Featuring My Music Scorpio

Here’s another awesome time lapse film featuring my music in the soundtrack. This excellent piece from photographer Ben Chase is called Surreal Journey and uses my licensed track Scorpio. Ben describes his work:

“From the late-night departures in inclement weather to the exploring of distant unmarked roads, my pursuit of photography is often a “Surreal Journey”. This was produced from footage and time-lapse frames taken in the Northwest Territories, Wyoming, Washington State, and Montana.”

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:
