Behind the Scenes:
Moonlight was inspired by the great composer Ludwig Van Beethoven and his masterpiece "Moonlight Sonata," written for piano. It was written for piano, of course, because the electric cello had yet to be invented...
"I used both of my 5-string electric cellos (one tuned extra high and one extra low) and the acoustic cellos to give this piece a unique feel and a high level of emotion.
I used another melody from Beethoven -- try and guess what it is (guess before you scroll down to the credits where it is listed!) It starts at 1:21 and reoccurs throughout the tune. This melody happened spontaneous in the studio and saved the tune from a bad case of writer's block." -Steven Sharp Nelson
Music produced by Al van der Beek & Steven Sharp Nelson
Written and performed by Steven Sharp Nelson
Inspired by Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" and the melody from Beethoven's 7th Symphony, 2nd movement (Allegretto)
Recorded, mixed & mastered by Al van der Beek at TPG Studios
Video produced by Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart, and Shaye Scott of the Piano Guys
