"Unraveling" is the eighth song on Evanescence's fourth studio album, Synthesis. It serves as a intro to "Imaginary."

Background[edit | edit source]

This was the first piece of music written for Synthesis and inspired by Mozart's Moonlight Sonata. The song was explained in the tour program:

This is the first piece of music written specifically for Synthesis. It is inspired by the dream-like, upwards climbing in the middle section of the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

On a track-by-track post on the band’s official Facebook page, Amy Lee said:

I saw this as the intro to ‘Imaginary.’ It was loosely inspired by a part of ‘Moonlight Sonata,’ I’m a Beethoven fan. It’s extremely expressive. That’s one of the first big, hard, classical pieces I wanted to learn how to play while studying classical piano. Everybody knows the hook of ‘Moonlight Sonata,’ but there’s a section with this beautiful, ascending piano part that has always been my favorite. And I think you can hear that.[1]
