To Forgive - Composed by Kenneth Hope for the Firefly CD Collection. Recorded at Xanadu 2020 - Copyright 2020 - Music is a language, and if you are patient enough to listen to this piece through its entirety, you will hear two people speaking ; one with a high note and another with the lower notes. You will hear the process of singularity, togetherness, contemplation, empathy, surrender and compassion as two journey through until final forgiveness is celebrated through stillness and acceptance
Composed and performed by Kenneth Hope on a D500 Hammered Dulcimer with Orchestration - from the Fragileworld Collection. Kenneth Hope - © Among the High
Imagine if we could communicate with Intelligent Life through the Language of Music. In this piece, we send music out through the ever expanding Universe in hopes we may be heard. Toward the last moment of the piece, they hear us and communicate back to us in counterpoint melody.

The answers are within our reach. At the very Foothills of our highest goals.
This is a piano piece I composed with orchestration. The painting reflects serenity. I hope the music gives you peace of mind in a troubled World. A cabin in the country, is the way I find myself, in order to create my future and be authentic to my purpose. Don't ever let anyone tell you how to live this one life you are given. Be yourself. Create your moments...
The first movement of a larger piece that reflects my viewpoint of the year 2020. Through the language of music I use musical onomatopoeia to allow the music to simulate what I hear as a storm. I depict the storm approaching through the bass notes on the keyboard, and winds swirling upward to the middle of the keyboard, reflecting the 'eye of the storm' in calmness, only to endure the rage yet again to close with heavy dissonance sounding the 'cuckoo bird'

A meditative Statement through music
Awakened one night and looked through the rear window of the house into the meadow and witnessed the star filled night, and a live light show here on Earth thanks to the thousands of Fireflies that emitted their light to attract their mates. The birds were recorded on site the morning this was composed.
