About the Artist
Conni St.Pierre's instrumental music is ambient, relaxing, meditational, and comforting. The ''Legends Trilogy'', seven years in the making, consists of three cd releases on Maine's smasheasy? label: ''Beneath the Waves: Legends of Lost Cities,'' ''Between the Branches: Legends of the Wild,'' and ''Beyond the Sky: Legends of the Starry Night.'' Together the trilogy totals 120 minutes of soft, inspiring, tranquil music.
The instrumentation is alto flute, Japanese shakuhachi, keyboards, and native flute. Some of the tracks were recorded outdoors, on a mountain deep in the woods of western Maine.
The most recent release, ''Beyond the Sky,'' was named the #1 New Age instrumental album of 2003 by NPR's Wind and Wire. Her fourth album, ''Flower Spirits'' is set for releasee on the Spring Equinox, 2006.
Conni's music is often used for yoga, massage, and bodywork, as well as in physical therapy, hospice care, and has even been used in hospitals during surgeries. Creative artists often use her music while writing, painting, or working.
The Blue Divide describes the Legends cds as ''...a quiet, yet outdoors-like experience. The listener is engulfed in Conni's mood-setting performance.'' The All Music Guide says, ''The playing is superb, and the imagery of the titles helps give shape for the listener's mind to grasp the word-less poetry and cascading sound...an exhilirating listening experience.''
Conni St.Pierre's cds are available on the smasheasy label at smasheasy.com, and amazon.com. Downloads are available at over 150 commercial websites worldwide.
Performances are available with Conni as a solo artist on alto flute, native flute, and shakuhachi with accompaniment, or solo celtic harp. She is also available for soundtrack and film score work, workshops, and private functions.
