Single Shot: Here’s an eerily sparse steel drum rendition of Ludwig Van’s immortal “Moonlight Sonata.” Simply titled here as “Interlude”, it’s a strange and somber anomaly in a typically festive genre not known for evocations of reflective melancholy. To be honest, I’ve been trucking around this dusty, otherwise unremarkable thrift-scrounged Barbados Steel Drums LP for well over a decade, simply unable to toss it out due to the oddball beauty of this one track. Its a crackly old thing by now, but maybe better that way…
A true wonder. Thanks!
Nice! Thank you, Nick.
Haunting! There is actually a bit in the documentary Lunarcy where they’re talking about playing instruments in space/on the moon and there’s a short performance of Moonlight Sonata on steel drums.
My mother would love to hear this!
