Abstract/Artist Statement

The Mystery of the Fur Elise is about this song on University of the Pacific grounds where no one knows where it is coming from. It is about a journalism student trying to write her last paper before she graduates from college. She has writers block trying to think of a topic until she hears the Fur Elise play at its usual time. She decides to interview different people where they tell her their story of the song and every time they hear it. Students keep referring her to Professor Jeff who then realizes that a door has been locked for seven years in the Owen building where he does recording tracks and comes to find out the song is coming from a conservatory student who has not passed her jury and it is her last chance after seven years so she locked herself in Owen building practicing to make it perfect. We decided to create this film because it is our last year at Pacific and we wanted to do something fun with a song student's hear around campus, but no student knows where it comes from.
