Programme Note

Time Lapse is one of the few non-Darwinian pieces in the soundtrack and it was, unusually, designed for a specific scene - the long tracking shot through the laboratory where the time lapse photography of the decaying animals was taking place. Against the profusion of camera shutter clicks I decided to establish a slow, funereal steady pulse. The emotional content was my private affair, not really related to the requirement of the film. I suppose it also became the model for Memorial, mad familiar in The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover
