Music for Passive Listening

Confined to the studio, with musical instruments around me, it is hard to resist creating music.

I deliberately use the word "creating" rather than "composing".

Composing implies a conscious and active act of creating a piece of music. It would then require active listening, to discover the full extent of the work that has been put into it.

myNoise is different. myNoise creates sounds for passive listening. The craft is to avoid developing anything that is either too exciting or too boring. It must sit just in between.

The sounds on myNoise are not intended as entertainment, but to offer your ears a pleasant sonic blanket. Covered by such a blanket, your mind can pursue other activities without interruption. Without your noticing it, time will pass more quickly, will be more enjoyable; you will be happier at work, or sleep better (not at work, please).

Creating music for passive listening calls for a more passive compositional process, mostly noodling around without intentions. When something nice happens, almost coincidentally, I save the recordings for future use. Once sufficient material has been collected, it is time to glue the pieces together.

Sometimes I spice them up with the help of an external contributor, like I did here with Franco Donadio, who added a wonderful blue jazzy touch to the background tracks.

Franco is a contemporary jazz guitarist and music composer from Buenos Aires, Argentina - a city known for its intense music scene. He enjoys using improvisation as a composition tool, mixing electronic sources and creating immersive and rhythmic tracks. He is currently working on a contemporary jazz project which will be released as an album in 2021. In the meantime, he will continue to create music tracks for games and enjoy discovering new techniques of musical expression, like he did with myNoise.

If you have a particular musical talent, and want to help with the final spicing of musical sound generators, you are welcome to contact me! I am always delighted to team up with musicians around the world.

  Nostalgic for some reason... <3

  I love pairing this with "Distant Thunder." The two combined soothe me and send me to sleep in no time. So incredibly grateful for this website as a whole! :)

  Incredibly soothing - I used to listen to smooth jazz music when studying as a teenager, and this is even more relaxing due to it's passive, background nature.

  It's been an especially bad month for me. My abuser has been active again, my cat's in poor health, and her days are numbered. My heart is in shambles. but listening to this gives me solace, even if for only a little bit. My life has always been characterised by my anxiety, and this website is a saving grace. Thank you for this.

  This sounds like Pink Floyd.

  This is absolutely flawless; combine this with In The Sky and you have officially been released to heaven.

  This is great. The pacing is just right. Not too fast or too slow. I can listen this for days.

  Loved this track, and the intro you wrote for it!

  Thank you so much for this. This is one of my favorite soundscapes so far, and it's helped with a lot. Thank you.

  A quiet, lonely but content night. Introspective me time. (I prefer listening to this in mono.)

  I love it! One of your best generators yet,,, very relaxing after a long day.

  The best one yet.

  Just turn down the guitar. It's amazing with thunder and rain.

  Moody and versatile! I love this one with one of the rain noises or Autumn Walk, plus maybe some vinyl sounds for a more lo-fi vibe. It eases the burden on my heart.

  It's no longer about music anymore, it's only about human well-being, that's our future!

  I've been going through some difficult times and the music on this website is great. It's not complex, which means I can play it in the background at any time, even during live lessons. It's helped me feel better and concentrate on my work.

  Love animating this while also playing the normal rain noise gen on bedroom... soft rainy nighttime vibes.

  Wow! Combine just the jazz guitar of this, Night Blue, with just the piano of 88 Keys--perfect match!

  This is soothing and peaceful. This is perfect for a poet to write to, I was having writer's block and this was the sledgehammer to my rescue. Thank you and keep up the good work.

  I don't know what to say. I just like it.

  I had long been waiting for a nice jazzy generator to stay in the zone while working, this is just what I was hoping for. May I just ask, is the quote of "Le Cygne" by Saint-Saëns deliberate or not? It immediately caught my ear! ;)

  Getting some lo-fi vibes from this gen, absolutely love it!

  This is so soothing. What a beautiful sonic blanket to help ease anxiety otherwise induced by a restless mind.

  Transports me to a relaxing world. I am glad I discovered this site. I am naturally very distracted, and working at home, with little kids has been terrible. Slipping a pair of headphones with sounds from myNoise provide me little bits of oasis... till one of my kids walks in and has something "important" to tell me...

  Lovely sounds, as if I am lazing around under a starry sky, watching the heavens float on by, carrying all my worries with them…

  Cramming through my organic chemistry portions... this keeps me running...

  Perfect for writing. Thank you!
