I wonder a bit about how much discourse of important music of the 19th and 20th centuries focuses on Wagner and that line when so many composers of today might more comfortably point to Debussy as an inspiration, even outside the "classical" tradition.

Joris Hermans made a video comparing 24mm and 85mm lenses for video work. Going beyond the usual “lower mm equals wider field of view” he discovers and shows movement itself changes:

- 85mm has more movement/feels faster in shots that involve rotating around a subject.
- Profile movement, tracking from the side, looks smoother in 85mm.
