Stop-motion is a cinematographic technique whereby the camera is repeatedly stopped and started, for example to give animated figures the impression of movement. It is a process which has been used extensively by two film makers whom I have recently become fascinated by; the identical twin Quay Brothers and the surrealist Czech animator Jan Svankmajer. Their films, which are full of weird and wonderful characters, have a hypnotic effect upon me which is in some ways reflected in the quasi-repetitive nature of this music (something I also enjoy in the work of the visual artist Bridget Riley). I also found the process of stop-motion itself a good analogy for composing where it can take a long time to write a few bars, but only a few seconds to hear them.
