    CLAREMONT, CA, September 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Renowned Iranian composer and musician, Kourosh Zolani, composed a memorial piece called "Peaceful Planet" for victims and families of the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. The musical piece's 11 minutes, 9 seconds chronicles the time before, during and after the attack.

According to Zolani, the first part of the musical piece portrays the world before the attack; the second part describes the tragedy and horrible feelings during the attack followed by the third part that shows the sadness and confusion after the attack. Finally, the piece ends with the artist's imagination of a peaceful planet. It depicts a beautiful spring day, full of peace, happiness, and birds singing along (listen to the music at http://www.kouroshzolani.com/news.html).

Credited as a mindful, social, music composer, Kourosh Zolani has also composed several pieces addressing cultural, political, and social issues. His latest album, "Memoirs of Sangesar", includes pieces such as "It Used to Be Home", dedicated to Iranian citizens who currently face many difficulties in their country; "With Us Forever", for the wars' fallen heroes, and "Dance of Change" for the recent US presidential election. "Memoirs of Sangesar" has received worldwide acclaim (view the music video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeG8J9cGdiU).

In a time in which the world sadly fosters distrust and separation among nations, Kourosh Zolani, like many proactive artists, uses the universal language of art and music to bridge the gap between the West and the East. In his music, Zolani envisions a peaceful planet and hopes that one day humans will respect and love each other beyond geographic borders.
