Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata Performed With The Bass A Bar Late And Melody A Bar Early

January 3, 2019

This is a Soundcloud file of musician Isaac Schankler performing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata but with the bass coming a bar early and the melody a bar late. Honestly, it still sounded incredibly beautiful and I don't even know if I would have noticed a difference from the original, but 1) I'm not a classical music expert and 2) I have Van Gogh ears. "You mean you cut them off?" No, I just mean they don't work very well. "Well that's a shame." HUH? "I said that's a shame." WHAT? "Very funny." Don't call me honey. "I'm leaving now." *silence* "I SAID I'M LEAVING NOW." *pretends to be asleep snoring*

Keep going for the Soundcloud.

Thanks to KR, who agrees the best moonlight sonata is the one performed between you and a lover under the covers. Or on top of them, whatever.

    I guess I'm too tone deaf to figure out the difference. Still sounds like Moonlight Sonata.

  • Really?
    It made my ears hurt.

    Sounds like AI is having another go at creating plagiarized music.

  • Jenness

    I agree with the comments that say it's very "silent hill". Not as good as the original but interesting that it still sounds like "a song" despite being so off.

  • Does sound a little fucky in the middle, but overall better than anything I could create in a lifetime.

    I know so little about classical music that I actually can't tell that this is off in any way.

    Not better and not incredibly beautiful. it's just wrong.

    i never said better

  • sizzlepants

    Yeah it sounds like pretentious art house film soundtrack.

  • What's wrong with that?

  • FIRST!
    I hate it when musicians bite off another musician's music. The original was fine. Go do some original stuff, will ya Mr. Copycat?

  • Douchy McDouche

    Playing a piece of music the way it's never been played before is being original. Everything in this world is a copy of a copy. Wake up.

  • My bad.
