Celebrating Beethoven! a post-250th video commemoration
« on: February 15, 2021, 01:49:15 PM »
perhaps there’s hopes of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and the political madness that has pre-occupied our nation over the past several years.  Perhaps people have more bandwidth to appreciate Beethoven again.
 
I just finished a video and music project with LA video artist Daniel McCarty that we’re planning to distribute, just trying to figure out where.
This video is our belated homage to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth year in 1770 – now 251st!
I think that Daniel did some beautiful shooting and editing that is quite special.  I cut the movement down so it would fit into @ 10 minutes slot so that it wouldn’t be too long.  It's not meant to be a professional video/audio recording of a performance per se:  more a work of art that was our way of saying thanks to a musician who has given millions of people on this planet much joy over centuries.  For musicians, that's really what it's all about!

Anyone else smell that?

Well it is unlisted.  If he was wanting to broadcast the video loud and wide, unlisting it would not be smart.
