Sailboat Ballet | Timelapse

May 19, 2009, the second day of the high school regatta at Community Boating. A single photograph was captured every three seconds during the regatta. In the video the frames are played back at a rate of 24 per second. The result is that two hours of sailing can be seen just over a minute and half, which means that time seemingly has been sped up by a factor of 72. The music is Bach’s Two Part Invention In B-Flat Major, BWV 785, which I sequenced and arranged as a midi file.

    Bland det bästa jag har sett på länge, verkligen rolig idé! Musiken är klockren också!
