"The Body Begins" is Chris' seventh and latest full-length album (released 2012), a 60 minute set of seven meditative, minimalistic works for classical guitar and occasional synth.
The project came about through talks with NY-based massage therapist Gwen Guarino (www.gwendolynguarinolmt.com
) about composing music to accompany massage that's a little different from what's currently on the market. The result is an album of music that is serene, restful and atmospheric but not without subtle musical development, variation & emotion. Each song, and the work as a whole, is a spacious musical meditation inspired by the body, by the way emotion is stored in the body, discovered in the body, released from the body.
