Convey My Love for My Wife with the Music Box and My Composed Melody (Taiwan)
I remember the time that we walked hand in hand at the Taipei Cultural and Creative Park, and inadvertently walked into a music box store with a wide variety of music boxes in colorful and exquisite wood carvings, which made us wander in the store for a long time. I noticed a hand crank music box at a corner, which only needs to feed a paper strip to play. According to the instructions, simply punch holes in the correct positions on the staff, a beautiful melody can then be played.
“This thing is so cool. Let’s buy it because I really liked it.” I said. But in my mind, I was telling myself that I will make a melody with it for my wife.
The Challenge of Arranging Music with a Hand Crank Music Box
I purchased my first 20-note hand crank music box for around 1,600 NT dollars at that time. After studying it for a few days, I found that there is a threshold to compose a melody by myself.
First of all, I must understand music. Secondly, the paper strips that came with the music boxes are blank without any scale markings, nor with any specified song printed, so I have to find the correct position of each note on the blank paper strip and punch holes.
It Takes a Whole Day Just to Complete One Song
After several days of research, I was finding the correct position of each note on the blank paper tape and punch holes. It is actually not difficult, but the thing is that you have to spend a lot of time repeatedly marking, checking, and punching holes. It takes a whole day just to complete one song.
(In order to express my love for my wife, I overcame all of these)
First Encounter with Muro Box
On a cool autumn day in 2022, I saw Tevofy Technology Ltd. was advertising their Muro Box N20 Lite model on the Internet. With a vague memory of where I’ve seen its product before, but remembering they were raising funds to mass produce this smart music box in the past, I decided to get to know the Muro smart music box. Such a magical coincidence is like the first time I met my wife on the Internet.
I Will Compose More Melodies for My Wife with Muro Box
“Thanks For Your Love” by Hsieh Ho-Hsien was the first melody I made for my wife on the hand crank music box. But now, I can use the composing function in the free Muro Box App to create the same melody much easier.
Muro Box is a Small Piano Player
I no longer have to spend a lot of time on making marks and punching holes repeatedly. Instead, I have more time to chat and dine with my wife and listen to the music we love.
For me, the Muro Box is not just a music box, it is more like a small piano player. I highly recommend it to everyone!
