How does Beethoven vibrate through milk?

Brooklyn-based photographer Sara Naim’s series, Beethoven-Moonlight Sonata, ‘looks at translating sound into a photographic image. Ludwig Van Beethoven’s symphony vibrates through milk. He composed this piece in the early 1800’s for his blind pupil and lover, Giuletta Gucciardi. Gucciardi said to Beethoven that she wished she could see the moonlight. Beethoven then composed a piece about the moonlight’s reflection off Austria’s Lake Lucerne, called Moonlight Sonata’. [via Feature Shoot]
