Went to work...

During an early April walk through Bessie Goldsmith\'s Woods in the southern part of Andover, where ice and snow still covered the ground in the more dense parts of the wood, I came to a path along Foster\'s Pond. As I walked this path, I paused for a moment to watch a dark leaf softly land in one of the small sunlit patches on the ground. What I had first thought was a leaf turned out to be a butterfly, a Mourning Cloak, and as I watched her slowly flex her delicate black wings, this music was born...

This is an ode to springtime in New England, to all things green and growing. Remembering and honoring the old ways - that the turning of a leaf tells of life and worlds beyond imagination! One just needs to ride on the wings of a dragonfly.

Upbeat Ambient New Age Concept CD
“On The Wings Of A Dragonfly” is an upbeat ambient new age concept album from The Lily Pond Orchestra. Douglas JP Lee is the orchestrator of The Lily Pond Orchestra, composing and creating all of the instrumental sounds you hear on the album. Lee has a way with formulating a broad concept for an entire album and sticking with it throughout. “On The Wings Of A Dragonfly” is no different as Lee embraces the outdoors and nature with an ode to the emergence of springtime in New England. The result is an upbeat, peaceful, and meditative sound that fully embraces and captures the essence of nature. The album is well-produced and sounds excellent. “Mossy Green and Turquoise” has some great keyboard work that creates a soundtrack to the sprouting of life and if you close your eyes you\'ll visualize these colors. “Mourning Cloak” is about the subject of inspiration for the entire album, the flapping of a butterfly\'s wings as it floats slowly away. “On The Wings Of A Dragonfly” is aptly titled, as it makes the listener feel as though they are floating through the springtime. Fans of ambient new age, be sure to pick this one up.
