Roqué’s First Friday Films: Für Elise (Interpretations Series) 09/02/22

Today is the first Friday of September, and it’s time for another new film to unveil to the world. This month, I present to you my own interpretation of the popular classical music piece by Ludwig Van Beethoven called “Für Elise.”

My rendition is actually more of a remix and re-imagining of the piece. I wanted to make it more whimsical and brooding, and I am very happy with the result. It starts off traditionally enough with the original melody, but things get a bit awry very soon.

I also had fun with motion graphics when I edited this film. You see my hands and I literally swirling all over the place. Piano playing is generally a sedentary phenomenon, and as such, I wanted to give this a little bit of fun and pizzaz. I also went for a vintage look with the footage adding noise and all kinds of scratches.

I hope you enjoy this super fun rendition of one of Beethoven’s most played musical gems. Just press “Play” above to watch it all unfold.

I’ll see you next month with another brand new film.
