Found on the way to someplace else.

The famous Adagio Sostenuto or first movement of Piano Sonata No. 14 in C# minor, Op. 27, No. 2 “Sonata quasi una fantasia,” otherwise known as "Moonlight Sonata" is recognized and loved, even by those who don't entertain much of an appreciation for classical music. Ludwig van Beethoven composed it in 1801. Beethoven composed it in his early 30s when he was starting to lose his hearing. The movement is quiet and somber, free-flowing and improvisatory in nature. The triplet ostinato rhythms continue throughout the movement. The German music critic Ludwig Rellstab made a remark that the first movement reminded him of “moonlight shining on Lake Lucerne,” and this comment fired the public's imagination. Within the decade publishers changed the name to “Moonlight Sonata.”

Many (most?) consider this a very romantic piece of music, however rather than a romantic feel, some speculate this movement could also be said to have a funereal feel, as coming from a death scene.

Here it is presented with the visual artistry of some now rare Great War machine guns in a slow motion study of them in action.

The mechanics of some of those guns are truly amazing. And potential knuckle busters!

Love “Moonlight Sonata!” I wouldn’t necessarily pair it with slow-mo machine gun shooting although that in itself was really cool to watch.
