Something to share in every single week throughout the year

Week 4 – Love In The Suitcase


This week I would like to share with you my first home-made musical track which was created with Sibelius (a trial version) in two years ago. My boyfriend and I and a few of our best friends had planed to form a group together to create and launch an Iphone game. Each of us decided the part of the work we most like to do. I was so excited at that moment, and I chose the audio section as part of my work. I began to create sound and wrote some melodies for the game we were going to build. Few months later, a core member of the group was no longer available to continue the project due to personal issues. The project faded away, and therefore, the plan turned out to be a dream. I was a bit disappointed when I first knew it, but the feeling of disappointment didn’t last long because, on the other hand, they made me realizing that I love creating sound and writing musical pieces! They, indirectly, had helped me to realize that I have found something that I like to do. From that point, I started to build sound and create my own musical tracks. Part of the sound you hear from this track was used to be a melody that I created for the project two years ago. After the project died, I rebuilt it and transformed it into something else that makes me feel. A love piece. I named it as “Love In The Suitcase”, it expresses a love feeling that will not be realized, and the feelings could only be kept hidden deep inside. To me, a suitcase may represent ability and skill that every one needs, or it may represent something valuable to the person who carries it every day, and it is also a place where to keep secret.

I hope you enjoy this love sound! 😀

  5. Real nice.

    One thing though, how did you manage to add that to the post? I tried last time but WordPress wouldn’t display it properly.

    • In soundcloud, I press “share” and then choose the embed code. @0@

      January 30, 2012 at 2:21 pm

      • Which embed code?

        Whatever I try to use, when I click back to “Visual”, it just disappears.

        January 30, 2012 at 2:33 pm

      • Found it!

        Looked harder when I saw your embed. Now the post looks more decent. Thanks.

        January 30, 2012 at 2:39 pm

      • You found it! That’s great! It was in the share / edit your widget / flash / embed code for wordpress. 😀

        January 30, 2012 at 2:47 pm

      • Yup. Never went there before so, I never saw that WordPress-thing before.

  6. I’m so happy for you. You are doing what you love and passionate about. Beautiful. The world needs to know, to feel, to listen to the melody of your music and of the love that flows out of it. Have a sweet day.

    • Thanks, Island Traveler! I found that when we do what we love to do, things around us suddenly look perfect, and a very strange sensation of satisfaction will burst out making us feeling very happy. 😀 Have a good day!

  7. Very, very impressive, Cristina!
    I’d have no clue how to even begin a project like this! That’s okay, though., because I’m perfectly happy listening to what you create!
    (wonderful photo, too)!

  13. I love! I can relate! I started on a project with 2 other friends and half way through they have decided not to pursue it anymore (both of them with good reasons). Now, I’m working on it by myself but still update the girls on my progress.

    Things always happen for a reason. I feel that God allowed that to happen so I would have them to support and pray for me along the way. If I had done it by myself from the very beginning, I feel that I will not reach this far. I have the tendency of starting things and not finishing it. Now, I thank God for what had happened. I know He knows what is best!

    • So true, Viviene! Sometimes I just wanna take a brief look at what God prepares for me in the future and what God allows me to have in my life, so I can save time from running in circles and concentrate on what really matters most to me. I don’t know… @0@

      February 7, 2012 at 10:24 am

  14. I love the music and the photo! Well done!

    February 3, 2012 at 11:40 pm
