Abstract

Time-lapse is a film process derived from chronophotography. Instead of taking fast movements and breaking them into parts, time-lapse covers a range of motion and turns it into one fluid movement. After researching time-lapse photography and films, I made a film in Tappan Square. My presentation explores how I composed the music to illuminate rarely used compositional elements for an image that changes subtly but consistently over time, in contrast to the highly dramatic shifts characteristic of film music.
