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.

  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!
