Salut! We’re definitely in need of a lil’ catch-up sesh… so here’s what I’ve been up to with some news and recent releases of projects.

Firstly, I hope you are all well, and have been enjoying this whirlwind of a year. Let me know in the comments how you’ve been!

For me, my daily grind of the second semester consisted of study, practise, perform, produce, compose, repeat. However, hard work does pay off and I am so thrilled for the holiday break and travel adventures, especially the festive season! #christmassongs #LASTCHRISTMAS

Btw, I freshly updated my YouTube channel and created my Facebook page, so feel free to follow/like/subscribe to me there.

The first of my new projects and tracks is entitled ‘Experiment‘. This explores the ethereal nature of sounds, by experimenting with field recordings from a contact mic and a synth patch. I am looking forward to testing cool recording techniques in future tracks.

Next, in my Sonic Arts Music major, I was able to dive into the world of producing for 360 Virtual Reality media. This involved filming videos with a 360 camera (including out of a car sunroof!), as well as editing, mixing and composing for ambisonic 4-channel, spatial audio. This was a very foreign yet stimulating process, and pushed me to produce and shape my music in a more innovative way. Moreover, I loved spending hours in the recording and mixing studios.

Specifically, my project ‘North-West‘ is an audio-visual sonic experience of driving from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Anzac Bridge at dusk. A single moving 360° shot is accompanied by a composition of ambisonic sounds to create a multi-sensory journey, traveling between two bridges. I particularly aimed to achieve a synergetic experience for the spectator in which the spatial audio and virtual image simultaneously generate an interactive journey.

I have shared the audio track on SoundCloud, and the full 360 experience video on YouTube (watch in Google Cardboard on your smartphone device or Google Chrome in HD) so please subscribe and enjoy!

Last but not least is the incredible String instrument addition of my very own Electric Violin (heart eyes).

Thus, expect some experimental sound recordings and possibly videos coming out soon! Any Electric instrument tips would be appreciated 🙂

I wish you a Happy Holidays and joyful New Year with even more opportunities!

‘Til 2018, ciao xx #sydneyandstreet

Salut! How are you? I apologise it’s been so long since I last posted, but I return with a much-needed update. Although it’s already halfway through 2017, this year has been a fresh yet motivating start to my personal and creative musical endeavours.

Firstly, I hope you enjoy the new look of the website which I recently re-designed and organised to showcase my Music and artistic perspective as a producer/composer and record label. You can even listen to my tracks whilst you’re browsing! [PRESS PLAY NOW ♡] I’m pretty proud of the result 🙂

From the end of last year, my focus has been centred on planning, manifesting, and attracting my goals and visions. Above all, in addition to Uni and online audio production courses, I have continued to learn, create, experiment and explore sound in recent projects. I am also thankful for all the skills and sources of inspiration that I have gained from my studies this year.

In particular, my new composition ‘Sunday‘ features a special collaboration with my brother on electric Guitar. With limited recording production, a chilled groove, and ambient vibes, this track was inspired by easy Sundays. ‘Sunday’ also includes experimentation of many pre- and post-production and recording techniques. Have a listen here + below! ↡

I have also been busy performing on the Violin in orchestras and ensembles for events around Sydney, and on live television including The Voice Australia 2017. Of course, I have had a blast learning, creating, and collaborating with many talented artists and directors. I will always love to share my passion with others, and I am forever grateful for incredible opportunities.

Regarding dreams and goals, I have consistently reflected on gratitude and my desired manifestations. I strongly suggest a regular process for this, especially on the night of each full moon, as the spiritual power of the Law of Attraction is magical. Meditation and Yoga have been additionally formidable tools to practise inner peace and attract success. Particularly as a creative person, it is paramount that you put yourself and your art first, and always BELIEVE.

So here I am, in the groove, inspired and motivated as ever. I hope you are focused to work hard and make your dreams reality, everyday. Stay tuned for upcoming projects!

Believe in yourself, you can do it xx #sydneyandstreet

Salut! Long time no see… Hope y’all are well, it’s been a while!

I’m back after another hectic year of uni and music. I’m also bringing some overdue blog posts of cool experiences (I was on TV!!), concerts, fashion, and places that I’ve travelled to this year #staytuned!

Firstly, this is an inspired update post introducing sydneyandstreet as a sonic composer and producer! I have found my passion of music in sonic arts, electronic music composition and audio production. Consequently, I have been recently occupied by projects and compositions, including ‘Le Début’ (in progress) and ‘Wave’ which are published on Soundcloud. I would love for you to have a listen so click this link and enjoy!

“sydneyandstreet aka Isabella Loong is an emerging sound design composer and producer from Australia. With a diverse musical background, her eclectic taste inspires exploration of various sounds, production techniques, and genres including electronic, alternative, Classical instrumental, and cinematic music. Think Flume meets Philip Glass with a healthy dose of Classical chill to express a unique listening experience.”

From a lot of great opportunities, self-discovery, crystals, yoga, personal achievements, artistic direction, and creative inspiration from everywhere, I feel hopeful and motivated for what’s to come…

If you follow me online (mainly Instagram + Twitter), you might be aware of my recent experiences, thoughts, and activities, but this is a brief life update of my new sound and direction. Also, check out my music platforms Soundcloud and Spotify @sydneyandstreet for my playlists and music faves. I’ll feature some special playlists and tracks in future posts.
