In their efforts to counter violence, a Canadian rock musician and a classical pianist from The Netherlands, come together to offer a piece a free music.

For the whole year 2009, Robert Beriau, progressive rock musician, offers «Time Fracture», and Jorgos, classical pianist, offers recording of his interpretation of «Moonlight Sonata» from Beethoven, for free download.

«Providing this music is our modest way to express the horror of rising violence as seen over the world in recent years. If music can help improve collaboration and hamony between poeple, we would be happy to participate in our humble way»

I read it here.

It’s a nice thought. I don’t believe music brings peace, but the attempt to bring peace is admirable.

I also heard about a Guitars not Guns” program. Again, admirable. And I do hope it keeps some kids from getting into gangs. But I have to tell ya … I know hostile musicians. I know some that, should they ever get their hands on a gun, would scare me to death. Music doesn’t fix everything.

And some of us carry knives.
