The other two clock tick sounds (one has a higher sound than the other) had a less spatial feeling and were placed sequentially (low, high, low … etc) until the video fades. The amount of layered audio begins to gradually fade underneath this second series of clock ticks so that they begin to audibly stand out. Each sound was individually mapped out to each rotation of the compass as can be seen in the following video.
