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.

Ciao xx

Salut! I know it’s been an exceedingly long time since I last posted, however, despite this disappointing inconsistency, a lot has happened recently. Most significantly, I commenced my studies at university in March. This major leap into tertiary education signified a clear shift but it has proved to be a very positive experience so far. New faces, new friends, new places, new tutors/lecturers, new classes, and a new routine.

Studying one’s passions more directly at university is invigorating and intellectually stimulating, especially whilst being surrounded by like-minded creative people. Meeting a diverse range of people is also amazing. I have never received so many compliments and greetings which always brighten my day.

I frequently get asked about my outfits which is very special for me considering my passion for fashion. I also enjoy the range of fashion styles at university. I have been meaning to share this post for what seems like an eternity, so here it finally is. I present to you my Uniform: consisting of affordable, stylish, chic, casual and comfortable versatile staples. I usually dress according to the weather, comfort, and personal choice. Jeans, pants or trousers are particularly easy to wear for travel and racing to classes. I also realised layering with blouses, coats and jackets is beneficial for changing temperatures and unpredictable Sydney weather. Simple make-up is essential with a thin cat-winged eyeliner and bold lipstick to enhance your features. Minimal jewellery accessories include studs or hooped earrings, paired with some gold rings. As for my hair, I opt for simple, no-fuss hairstyles which can slightly tame my frizz during high humidity levels. Recently I’ve been styling a half-up top-knot which looks a bit boho and casual whilst conveniently gathering some of my thick locks into a bun away from my shoulders and face. My favourite tutorials for this hairstyle and others can be found here, here, here, here, and here. Lastly, a light and sweet scent completes the outfit.

I hope I have inspired you to rock your own personal, street-style Uniform. Remember to keep it real and true to yourself. Back to the books!!

Have a listen to my new routine Spotify playlist which I have on repeat. Don’t forget to share it around. Bisous.
