ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Lepidoptera” is a word that comes from Latin used to describe the order of insect that includes moths and butterflies like the darling Mothra! Butterflies are often used to symbolize the beauty of Nature, a symbol of change, joy and color and as transformation and resurrection; moths are known to be a symbol of searching for light, of determination and attraction. With all of these meanings wrapped together, Boston-D.C. based Daniel Ouellette and the Shobijin offer a colorful, aurally enticing collection of music that narrates, challenges and delights with a multi-lingual cocoon of electro-acoustic creation with "Lepidoptera (Behind every wing, someone enjoys an egg!)” .

On this release, the act transforms from the synth and electro-guitar based sounds of previous recordings to an organic, electro- acoustic marriage of variation that offers the listener a myriad of styles that range from world music, cajun, americana and new wave. Boston's Elizabeth Cleary (Big Screen Radio) on cello and Theresa Cleary (As The Sparrows) on violin, offer a delicious string section to bring earthly, warm currents. Providence's Jacob Haller and Boston's Elizabeth Lorrey on acoustic guitars create magical root influenced music to make lovely musical expression. Boston's Kevin Mulkerrins (Donald) on bass, brands the songs with smooth, rhythmic stylings. The vocalists Cheryl Castonguay (Fall River, MA), Anne Marie Cleary (Boston, MA - Anarchangel), Mandi Curits, Pamela Formica (Burlington, VT - The Toes), Noemia de Melo-Benavides (Dartmouth, MA - Gerasons), Dora Gonçalves-Currey (Mashpee, MA - Gerasons), Deborah Lee (Wareham, MA), Elizabeth Lorrey, Deirdre McClaren (Boston, MA - Anarchangel) and Suzanne Pelletier-Massano (Dartmouth, MA), give full passion to the songs adding ethereal emotion that is required with Daniel's compositions and vocal arrangements.

On Lepidoptera, each song carries its own expression of color, joy or determination that makes the attraction of this collection distinct. Themes range from dealing with a bully, passion of love and deception, facing fear, the adventure of a new life, the joy of knowing one's self, the sweetness of being with your best mate and the folly of being too pushy. The songs take you into lessons of history, the importance of feminism, the beauty of gender fluidity, the bravery against fear and the art of self-examination whilst stylistically melding modern electronic beats with classical, medieval, folkloric sounds. Enjoy the trip into the cocoon of Lepidoptera and fly to colorful
