To create music for this animation I was using garage band.
First I uploaded a track of forest sounds. Then I played the music keyboard to create a melody.

Settings for the piano:

At the end I’ve added some thunder and rain sounds to connect to the animation and atmosphere of it. I’ve also changed some settings of fading in and out:

The music mood:

At first the melody is kinda cheerful and happy. Then the music becomes a bit slower and gets into the gloomy mood. For example, the sounds in 0:33 show that the girl was feeling  cheerful but got the realisation of being left out, which represent her feelings of getting lost and scared. Then the thunder and raining sounds come up, which show how she feels. After the sad part at 1:07 there are uplifting sounds again which represent hope. At this time she expects for something to happen. However, the hope wasn’t real and the music ends up with sad, “down-going” sounds, which represent disappearance and the vanishing.

Stop-motion animation:

The soundtrack was made with garage band using a piano and bell instruments. The link to the audio:
