Music and Garden Videos

I love making miniature movies! Sometimes the videos feature my music, and sometimes they feature my garden or my husband’s music.  I’ve gathered them all here in one convenient place!

  1. Hello Simon and thank you! I just constructed this page a few weeks ago so that I could round up the music videos here in one place. “Breath” is one of my favorites and the first one that I spent so much time constructing as a video. Now that I have HD video capabilities, I’m thinking of reshooting everything – maybe. My husband is my sound engineer and co-producer – he’s got great ears and I’m lucky to have him as a musical partner.

  2. Yikes! Don’t know how I missed this before, maybe was lacking in broadband ( we have a dreg, nub-end supply that makes heavy weather of media posts). “Breath”is lovely, sound quality, visuals and words. Nice seeing the instruments in action interespersed with moving and still images. Great sound production too!
