Tim Carter

Bringing Music to Life


Preserves shows the beauty of the small moments in romance, their lasting impact, how they cause nostalgia to grip your heart so strong you can almost taste it. Tim Carter invites the viewer to join in his reminiscing in this piece from Stuart Beatch’s song cycle, Still Running.

“My video showcases a romantic memory filled with touching nostalgia; a new composition by Stuart Beatch from his song cycle Still Running, featuring modern queer narratives.” – Tim Carter
