Flautist, Composer of Ambient-Classic and New Age music, Published Author
Chris Michell is an English flautist and composer of ambient-classic and New Age music; Dolphin Love album (1991) was an early example of the New Age genre, with dolphin, whale and sea sounds, intrinsic to the musical texture. Michell became sub-principal flute/piccolo with Welsh National Opera for five years (1976-1981); free-lanced with Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC, English National Ballet, Opera North, Manchester Camerata and Northern Ballet until 1986. Teaching included Royal College of Music, Junior Department, University of Lancaster, Putney High School for Girls, Royal School, Bath and Wells Cathedral School, Somerset. Astarte Music Productions set up in 1989, was Michell’s own independent record label. Mark Vibrans produced her first album Song for Sophie 1989 for Astarte Music. Michell also started performing with Nigel Shaw at this time and developed the free improvisatory style that became their trademark, in the album Dreaming Pool 1990. In 1991 she recorded Dolphin Love with Clifford White and Arnie Sage and this proved to be a popular album in UK, USA and Australia.
After performing at an International New Age Music Conference in Los Angeles in 1991, Michell was offered a record deal with World Discs, USA and later Northsound, USA (now liquidated); record deals also with New World in Australia and Oreade Music, Netherlands.
In 1999, Michell (as Christa Michell) recorded Tibetan Chakra Meditations with Ben Scott, giving a 5% Royalty from each album sold to the Tibet Relief Fund, London. In 2001 she had a personal audience and performed for the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. She presented him with her album Tibetan Freedom Chants, which was recorded with monk Ven.Bhagdro, to raise money and awareness for the Tibetan cause.
