Aire Craft Audio recording studio owner Janis Panizza narrates author Marion Campbell's novel, The Dark Twin.â€
As a guest artist at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico, professional narrator Janis Panizza was given the keys to the recording facilities for a week to record a portion of her most recent audiobook, The Dark Twinâ€, authored by Marion Campbell. The novel is comparable to a primitive version of Tristan and Isolde, a Celtic tale of love, spirituality, and tragedy.
Just as the author claims to have caught the story as it flew past her at her ancestral home in Scotland, so did the same spirit seize Janis Panizza with a great desire to record the writings of Marion Campbell. Janis' experiences in Guadalajara and the street musicians she met along the way strongly influenced her interpretation of the novel and encouraged her to discover inner reserves of strength and artistry, both of which are required to complete a marathon audiobook recording.
When interviewed by the online voice-overs blog VOX Daily and asked about the contribution her narration would make to the world of audiobooks, Janis replied that the fruit of her labor is a new classic that will stand the test of time. Sources have informed Ms. Panizza that the audiobook, while formidable in its own regard, has also surpassed the original, bringing the story to a new plateau.
Janis' vigor and dedication have set her apart as an independent audiobook producer. Her voice beckons to an age where time stands still, perfectly suited to the Celtic era in which the book takes place.
Those interested in the audiobook may purchase their copy online at Janis' website. Janis is currently narrating a documentary in Santa Monica, California.
