  3 minutes, © 1999
A collaborative work by Stephanie Maxwell (animator) and Greg Wilder (composer)
Mastered on BetaSP; multiple video and digital formats release

The icy, long and dark nights of remote northern latitudes can easily create feelings of hypnotic isolation and disorientation. Like an imaginary compass, chance glimpses and glimmers of light mixed with sparse, restless sounds give direction and meaning in a dark and secluded environment. The lyrical narrative of Nocturne may be thought of as an apprehensive and compelling passage through the darkness, charged by sudden visual surges and plays of light, and the progressive tightening of the musical form.

The imagery for Nocturne consists of animated and digitized "real" objects and graphic materials. The music is a computer-generated score
