Stopping Time – Official Music Video Out Now!
Take a tour of the Niagara Escarpment and the beauty of South Georgian Bay through Third Development’s latest video, Stopping Time, a beautiful portrayal of the passage of time starring the fiercest female we know, Mother Earth and her Niagara Escarpment.
“Most of my songs are inspired by moments I have had here, outside, in nature.” Says Geoffrey James of Third Development. “I hike these trails all the time and am constantly moved by the breadth of beauty to be found in every corner of Simcoe-Grey.”
Stopping Time is a 4-minute instrumental music video that represents the journey of time through the travels of 4 women; all at different stages of their lives. The intro sets a curious tone with its inquisitive and playful beat and quickly transitions to strings, settling into a beautiful performance of orchestral synth. From field to forest, waterfall to beach, this video touches on the variety of landscape that South Georgian Bay has to offer. There is truly no shortage of beautiful moments to be found. The irony of this song is that there is no stopping time, but if we just take a few minutes to ourselves, to enjoy the natural wonders around us, perhaps we can succeed at slowing it down just a little.
