A Garden of Musical Delights Conni St. Pierre's new album, "Flower Spirits," is the first in a series of ambient and meditative instrumentals inspired by Conni's deep connection to spirit in the natural world. 'Flower Spirits' is a bouquet of songs, each composed with the essence and spirit of a particular flower in the arrangement. Conni's music blooms with vibrant alto flute melodies, the mystery of gypsy harp, haunting Japanese shakuhachi and ambient keyboards rooted with the gentle rhythm of Pat Malia's Native American drums and percussion. Conni St. Pierre is founder of smasheasy® and Tourmaline Media, and creator/composer of The Legends Trilogy, the critically acclaimed ambient/new age music series. Whether she's playing melodic alto flute lines, or hauntingly ambient keyboard resonances - with the sparseness of Zen shakuhachi, or time travelling with medieval-influenced Celtic harp- St. Pierre creates a musical landscape and shares an inner vision that is fresh and inspired - calm, and graceful. St. Pierre's music offers a perfected blend of new age, ambient, and traditional music that has brought her fans around the world, and critical acclaim. Her new fourth album, 'Flower Spirits' mirrors her deep love of nature in the songs which evoke the inner essences of flowers through her wordless, musical poetry. Conni's music is widely used for yoga, meditation, t'ai chi, reiki, massage, and other healing arts, and she has composed music for guided yoga and relax- ation releases. As a member of improvisational ensemble, Forest Floor, her music was part of the soundtrack of an award-winning independent forest documentary film. Read a great review from Bill Binkelman, at New Age Reporter.com: '... introspective/reflective style... St. Pierre is an undiscovered gem of an artist... exemplifies the healing and mystical qualities of the genre... ' and from Backstage Radio News, Belgium: 'Le coup de coeur... On est presque sur le toit du monde en parfait équilibre avec la nature.
