This visualization uses a digital 3D model of the Moon built from global elevation maps and image mosaics by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. It was created to accompany a performance of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune by the National Symphony Orchestra Pops, led by conductor Emil de Cou, at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, on June 1 and 2, 2018, as part of a celebration of NASA's 60th anniversary. Clair de Lune (moonlight in French) was published in 1905, as the third of four movements in the composer's Suite Bergamasque, and unlike the other parts of this work, Clair is quiet, contemplative, and slightly melancholy, evoking the feeling of a solitary walk through a moonlit garden. The visuals were composed like a nature documentary, with clean cuts and a mostly stationary virtual camera. The viewer follows the Sun throughout a lunar day, seeing sunrises and then sunsets over prominent features on the Moon. The sprawling ray system surrounding Copernicus crater, for example, is revealed beneath receding shadows at sunrise and later slips back into darkness as night encroaches.

The protests in Hong Kong have placed the city under the eyes of the world. These are highly tense times, where a lot of different emotions appear to cross the minds and hearts of Hong Kong citizens (and please, fellow Hong Kongers, allow me the honor and privilege to refer to myself as one of yours). In other words, Hong Kong seems to live a period of Sturm und Drang ("Storm and Stress").
For a while I have been working on a transcription of Ludwig van Beethoven's first movement from the Sonata quasi una Fantasia No. 14, Op. 27 No. 2 - most commonly known as "Moonlight Sonata" (1801) - as an homage to the composer on the occasion of the upcoming 250th anniversary of his birth (1770 - 2020). This movement (Adagio sostenuto) is probably one of the most iconic pieces of music of the Romantic era. Both its melody and key signature were source of inspiration for countless Romantic composers following Beethoven, among whom Frederic Chopin (who, inspired by it, wrote his famous Fantaisie Impromptu, Op. 66).
Coming to the point, the aim of this video is to show Hong Kong as may have never been seen by people who may have heard of it, but never visited it. Beethoven's notorious movement (which I transcribed by keeping the original key signature, i.e. C sharp minor) functions as the soundtrack for a journey through some of the most iconic locations of the city. At the same time, this video is also a reminder to all of us citizens of this amazing city of what we love about this special place, which everyday arouses Romantic-period-like feelings and emotions through its painting-like sceneries and welcoming people.
My deepest thanks go to the following people, whose help was crucial for the completion of this project: Giovanni Santini (audio mixing), Luca Ricci (audio mastering), Dan Eady (video production), and Peter Shadbolt (executive producer).

"The Self-Luminescent Semi-Transparent Moon" (Eric Dubay, 12. Oct. 2019)
"NASA and modern astronomy maintain that the Moon is a solid, spherical, Earth-like habitation which man has actually flown to and set foot on. They claim the Moon is a non-luminescent planetoid which receives and reflects all its light from the Sun. The reality is, however, that the Moon is not a solid body, it is clearly circular, but not spherical, and not in any way an Earth-like planetoid which humans could set foot on. In fact, the Moon is largely transparent and completely self-luminescent, shining with its own unique light.
The Sun’s light is golden, warm, drying, preservative and antiseptic, while the Moon’s light is silver, cool, damp, putrefying and septic. The Sun’s rays decrease the combustion of a bonfire, while the Moon’s rays increase combustion. Plant and animal substances exposed to sunlight quickly dry, shrink, coagulate, and lose the tendency to decompose and putrify; grapes and other fruits become solid, partially candied and preserved like raisins, dates, and prunes; animal flesh coagulates, loses its volatile gaseous constituents, becomes firm, dry, and slow to decay. When exposed to moonlight, however, plant and animal substances tend to show symptoms of putrefaction and decay.
In direct sunlight a thermometer will read higher than another thermometer placed in the shade, but in full, direct moonlight a thermometer will read lower than another placed in the shade. If the Sun’s light is collected in a large lens and thrown to a focus point it can create significant heat, while the Moon’s light collected similarly creates no heat. In the "Lancet Medical Journal,” from March 14th, 1856, particulars are given of several experiments which proved the Moon's rays when concentrated can actually reduce the temperature upon a thermometer more than eight degrees.
So sunlight and moonlight clearly have altogether different properties, and furthermore the Moon itself cannot physically be both a spherical body and a reflector of the Sun’s light! Reflectors must be flat or concave for light rays to have any angle of incidence; If a reflector’s surface is convex then every ray of light points in a direct line with the radius perpendicular to the surface resulting in no reflection.
