Fusing calm ambience and gentle
melodies, Conni creates music that
takes you out of yourself to another
place and time. Soft, inspiring,
meditative, tranquil. Instrumental
alto flute, keytoards, shakuhachi,
gypsy harp, and native flutes invoke
the mystical forests of Maine.
Conni's music is lovely for yoga,
bodywork, creative pursuits, relaxing
or just dreaming. "These are some of
my favorite things," she says, "they
are very complementary."
"I just play as the spirit moves me,"
she says,"it's not precomposed or predetermined, although I often
go back and "recompose" some things
I have initially improvised, and then
practice them for awhile to get a
feel for the emotion."
On her latest release, Mountain
, much of the album is more vast and ambient than her other works,
reflecting the spaciousness of a high
mountain range. There are moments
of alto flute melody and world drum
rhythm ,but alsopassages where the
simple resonance of the flute or
keyboard creates the entire sound-
scape. Mountain Spirits is the second
in the Nature Spirits series.
