Feeling Like A Samurai
This soundscape overflows with contrasts - on one side, the loud drumming of giant taiko drums; on the other, the quiet breathing of the small shakuhachi flute and the subtle tones of the guqin. Although these instruments aren't normally played together, as the taiko drum tends to overpower the other two, here on myNoise you can mix them to your taste. Create a cinematic soundscape to inspire you with the history and power of the East - the same drumming that motivated troops at war in feudal Japan can now stimulate you at work!

The steady and rythmatic sound of the war like drumming paired with the thrums of the guqin take me off to another land.
This is one of the best generators for me, if only there was some kind of shamisen generator...
'Definitely the kind of music that makes you want to go places... :)' I couldn't have said it better myself. I'm using this setting provided by the second heart preset of this generator while I draw Thel 'Vadam in his Arbiter-Kaidon harness. Feels like I'm on Sanghelios with Thel and his Swords of Sanghelios! Never stop being amazing, myNoise! You are awesome!
These particular settings are very minimalist and inspiring. Absolutely wonderful to work to!
I love this, the rhythmic warlike thunder of the drums coupled with the musical shaku drone... it makes me feel so invigorated and inspired. I've been listening to it for thirty minutes and I havent got tired of it yet! I love the way the notes keep changing, but the repetition of the drums in the background keeps your blood pumping. Definitely the kind of music that makes you want to go places... :)
This generator is absolutely beautiful! Very relaxing, and gets the creativity flowing too. Already one of my favourites.
This setting is both relaxing and rejuvenating. My energy increases while listening to this. Great for dark winter afternoons.
♥ A true masterpiece that transports me away.
♥ Dreaming of a taiko-only generator :D
♥ Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me.
♥ Try combining it with the fifth through eighth sliders of Yakutian Voices.
♥ I love this configuration. It reminds me of an intense battle scene. I'm kind of thinking of the Okami soundtrack...
♥ This gen is energizing and enhances focus. At my standing desk, I find myself moving to the rhythms, being more awake on a dark winter morning, and able to read large reports in a single, uhm, bound.
♥ Wish I knew who was doing the taiko drumming, it is most excellent!
♥ Pair this set on war drums with Stardust on Deep Sky.
♥ ← Try it :) Low speed and high tunes seem to work the best, in my opinion. Love the far east theme.
♥ Cinematic East with Sleeping Dragon, both on animate, makes a good "soundtrack" background that sounds perfectly logical and rational, nicely layered and with a lot of internal consistency - but it never quite evolves into a "song." With no repeated chorus or clear ending, it doesn't cause any breaks in my attention, and never sticks in my head.
♥ Very reminiscent of my memories of watching the old anime series 'Saiyuki: The Journey West.' I seriously love this blend.
♥ An amazing soundscape, once again. It put me in mind of Greg Edmonson's excellent score for the show Firefly. I set the animation mode and the animation speed as needed for an evolving soundtrack when playing my favourite space-sims. Creates a great Serenity vibe. Thanks for all the work you put into this and all of the other fantastic pieces. "Can't stop the signal!"
♥ Love the conversation. The rhythmic taiko and the raga-like Guqin playing adds the Japanese touch. Once again a great creation, Stephane.
♥ Interesting mixer... being able to switch from the calming drones and high flute-like sounds, to the pulsing energetic drums makes for a unique experience.
♥ I love all those who are heavy drops falling from the dark cloud that hangs over men: they herald the advent of lightning, and, as heralds, they perish. (Nietzsche)
♥ This generator makes me so fiercely happy I can't cope.
♥ I absolutely love this and the other Japanese sounds. This setting, combined with the German Lady setting on Number Stations -- and I have no idea why I ended up combining them -- creates a bizarre rhythmic combo that makes me grin.
♥ I love just having the low drums, taiko drums, claps going with the Guqin. Reminds me a long awaited battle finally getting started.
♥ I love this one! While sometimes I want something quiet and understated, other times it's nice to have something energetic and lively playing. This is an excellent choice for that!
♥ Really get me inspired, I like it best while working. This settings get me really pumped up for any task. Thank you for this awesome gen!
♥ This one is made to fly... set the animation to deep (0 to 150) and the speed to 4x. If you never change the root keys or tape speed this is the one to try... it's a great video game for the ears.
♥ I love this new generator! I can't wait to start experimenting with stacking it with some other of my favorites. Thank you for all the hard work you put into making these. Your generators make a positive difference in my day.
♥ Stphane, you have excelled yourselfwith this one. It makes me want to go outside,light a fire and dance around it. It's really got a tribal vibe. Loose yourself to the rhythm!
♥ This is just what I need for tomorrow - the dreaded Monday morning. Perhaps (as we say in England) it will help get my arse in gear. You make these amazing sounds work so well together!
♥ Totally my new favorite generator. I love every instrument here! Click the heart for a great soundtrack, it could be in a movie.
♥ I combine this channel along with Rising Sun: Traditional Japanese on www.Accuradio.com & it's Japanese folk melodies performed with traditional instrumentation; its the best backdrop I know of to spend a weekend playing Hanafuda! :) (which, by the way, is a Japanese card game that translates to "the game of flowers")
♥ This and just the voices and drums from the "Buddhist Ceremony" soundscape create something that I can only describe as epic (I assume that is true for pretty much everything that is combined with these amazing drums) - thank you so much!
♥ This brings me peace.
♥ This is already the most fantastic thing I've ever heard, so glad I donated!
♥ Combine with Yakutian Voices for a haunting experience...
♥ I am using almost exclusively the Flying Fortress, now this is getting changed, I think.
♥ Quite a soundtrack.
