Richard Bentley has a love for buildings and believes they are a living part of our cities and cultures. But he wonders how much we really see the great structures surrounding us as we move through our modern spaces. For three years, he has been a time lapse photographer, patiently turning his camera on some special buildings and encouraging us to consider what they reveal of our past, present and future. In Metropolis, Richard uses his photography to explore our relationships with the cities and structures that surround us.
Got a room with a view? Make the most of it: set up your camera to shoot a time-lapse movie. It's a great way to capture the unfolding of time when you're on a vacation or business trip, or to capture the drama of passing storms on a rainy day.
"In a Time Lapse" was composed over a period of two years and recorded in October 2012 in a Monastery near Verona, Italy. The 14 pieces that compose the album range between piano, strings, percussion and electronics. As with previous albums, "In A Time Lapse" develops as a suite with a concept that recalls the form of a novel divided in different chapters. Epic and emotional, experimental and adventurous, "In A Time Lapse" moves even further exploring new textures and arrangements that blends different musical worlds in one.
