My name is Eugene Kazantsev and I am a professional music box composer.
For the last 4 years, I have created more than 1000 custom music box melodies for different types of music box mechanisms.
I have recorded and produced original music box melodies, popular song covers, and have created notation for DIY paper strip music boxes, MIDI and audio music box versions for people all over the entire world.
I’m happy to be one of the first composers working with Muro Box and always happy to work on creating new melodies.
【Why I Love the Sound of Music Box】
Music box sound is something that can immediately take you into a world of childhood dreams, miracles, and fairy tales. It can take your mind out of real life, and at the same time, it can open a door to your inner world, your real beauty, and your honesty.
Thanks to the Muro Box team for giving me the chance to serve their customers. The following is a story shared by a French customer (Nicolas Rousseau) about his childhood memory with the theme melody from a Japanese animated fantasy film “My Neighbour Totoro”.
【The Story written by Nicolas Rousseau】
Totoro is iconic all around the world but for me, of all the movies I have seen in this little theater, the story of My Neighbour Totoro reminded me most of the area we were living in. Remote, living with imagination and passing time with the family.
Funny thing is that I don’t really recall the details of the movie at that time (I’ve seen it many then, be assured) but the memory right before the film is still vivid : the cold snowy weather and red noses in winter, the hot tea and fresh bread freely distributed in the queue, the steam coming out of my brother’s mouth, the loud noisy expectation of dozens of small kids. All of that in front of that small theater, waiting and wondering what would be this weird gray cat-bear.
We didn’t have the OP back in the days, no internet and no tapes, but I still remember me and my sister humming the Neighbour Totoro song right out of the theater, getting in the car back to home and screaming like it would have been the Catbus.

I (Eugene) am glad that my melody arrangement can bring back his simple and happy childhood memory.
I hope that I can have a chance to help you bring back the old memories with my service.
