Into the Silence
One of my favorite pieces, hands down. A multi-layered mixed media piece consisting of the first few bars of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata,an reproduction of an excerpt from a 1940's scholar essay, the dictionary definition of moonlight and the hint of Beethoven peering through the bars of the music.
The title, a nod to Beethoven's encroaching deafness that overtook his life. Can there be something worse for a musician composer?
