Meet Jannet Walsh

By Jannet Walsh

Here is a video, in English and Spanish, I photographed, produced and edited in the historic city of St. Augustine, Fla, founded in 1565. I just pushed record and walked in front of my video camera mounted on a tripod.

The music you hear in the background is really me playing my flute in my living room and edited in Audacity. A special microphone for my flute was attached and I recorded the music with a digital recorder. I then simply copied and pasted the music "O Son Do Ar" or "Sound of Air" to create the round style of this Galician folk song. Galicia is a region in Spain where the culture of the Celtic, people from Ireland and Scotland, combine their cultures. Please take a look at my work history along with video samples and links to my work.
