In this episode of Soul Stories, I talk with Ken Elkinson, pianist, composer and winner of the 2016 ZMR Award for Best Electronic Album, the instrumental music equivalent of the Grammy’s about how his connection to music has supported and provided direction to the journey of his life and the lives of those around him.
One of the people Ken's music has inspired is Tim Andrew, a Connecticut fireman, who calls himself “a charity geek." Tim will be taking Ken's music along with him on his playlist as he hikes the Appalachian Trail to raise funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish Foundation. You can support Tim's hike by donating to Make-A-Wish Foundation.
In Breathwork we use our breath to connect to this kind of inspirational that lives inside us. It supports us and others through the times in our lives when we need to flip off fear and have clear direction to take the next steps on our life's journey.
Ken’s most well-known project to date is his ongoing Music For Commuting series – music composed specifically to help calm angry drivers. The project, which currently consists of 140 tracks has been featured in over 100 press outlets globally including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, CNN, USA Today and the BBC.
