Soundlapse…like a timelapse, but with sound?

When writing this post, I was stumped as the what to call this style of video. It’s not a mashup or a remix since it’s composed of original recordings to an original tune. And it not really a collage, stopmotion, or timelapse. I suppose one could categorize it as found sound since the audio is taken from every day life, but the topic is so focused that I’ve concluded that soundlapse really is the best terminology.

Regardless of what you call this type of video, it’s clearly awesome. The sounds of the multi-line desk phones and janky old elevator really embody the chaos of working in an open office in New York City.
