Chris Assaad has just released the official video for his new single “Sensitive Soul” and we’re delighted to share it with FtC community. Alongside his contributions to Face the Current as music content curator and conscious artist interview host, Chris continues to produce his own art through music and we invite you now to experience his latest creation!
The music video was captured in a playful and laid back shoot with Chris’s favourite video director and long time collaborator, Pavel Safonov. The video was shot on the foot trails of Topanga Canyon and Malibu beach along the Pacific Crest Highway in LA. Chris had developed a love for the healing effect of writing words in the sand and watching them be washed away. He shared the idea with Pavel who loved it and the two collaborated the evening before the shoot on a story and concept for the video. The idea to get the last shot with Chris being washed over in the ocean happened on the spot and was a one take capture and the very last one of the shoot.
I believe we are all sensitive souls, meaning that we are highly sentient beings. Some are more courageous when it comes to peeling back the layers and truly FEELing all of the range of emotions and all that comes with the human experience. This creation was made for those who often feel overwhelmed with the inherent challenges of being human and feeling so deeply, as an invitation to stop fighting, to be gentle with ourselves and to release what pains us, letting it be washed away by the music, the melodies and the images.” – Chris Assaad on “Sensitive Soul”
