Instrumental music is so powerful its interpretation is left to individual discretion as no two people hear music in exactly the same way. That composers intend their music to speak for itself is no accident, as excellence is a matter of intention.

Solo pianist and composer, Louis Landon from Chestnut Ridge, New York, has dedicated his life to music. His career has taken him around the world playing a variety of styles with some of the most recognized names in the entertainment industry. Yet, not long ago, Landon realized that his own music - the solo compositions that bring him so much joy and peace could surely bring joy and particularly peace to millions around the world who struggle to cope as unwitting witnesses to unnecessary destruction.
Landon's seventh CD, and second solo piano release "Peace Revolution" launched earlier this year, and continues to receive radio airplay worldwide. He's been interviewed on several NPR stations in support of "Peace Revolution" coinciding with critically favorable reviews of the 12-track CD. His first solo piano CD, "unwind" rose to No. 3 on the NAR charts and was nominated for Best CD of 2006, and Best Solo Piano CD of 2006 in the New Age Reporter Lifestyle Awards.
To further his efforts as a peacekeeper and one man making a difference, on June 2, 2008 Landon began recording and posting Improvs for Peace to Myspace, which he intends to continue doing every single day until the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are over. Landon posts free downloads of the Improvs on_http://myspace.com/LouisLandon2
. In just one month's time, the idea is gaining great popularity as a grassroots effort and several thousand downloads and plays of his music are accumulating worldwide. Improvs for Peace support Landon's fervent notion that music can bring peace to the world. He writes in his mission statement and the closing to all correspondence: Love and Peace Always and Everywhere.
