Sad, and beautifully so.

The duduk is an enigmatic wind instrument originating from Armenia that can truly captivate the heart and soul. Its sound is inherently sad, said by the Armenian people to be reflective of the fate of a entire nation. You might find yourself indifferent or desensitized to some music, but you will not be to the duduk. It could be the only instrument that could ever make you cry.

Ever since I first heard the duduk played in Peter Gabriel's soundtrack for The Last Temptation of Christ thirty years ago, I've been haunted by the instrument. For some time now I have been on a quest for a master duduk player. Recently I met Dave Tawfik, creator of Dream Full Of Zen and the author of The Armenian Duduk - A Complete Guide. Dave plays the duduk admirably well, and contributed his talents for the production of this generator. If you would like to hear more of his work, check out Dave's YouTube Channel.

  After that first time when this music calmed me down when I was crying, I always listen it when I'm not feeling well, be it sad, nervus, angry ... It even seems to help slightly when I have a headache! I have no words to explain how amazing this sound is! It is interesting how something that should make me sad does exactly the opposite.

  This feels like an anthem for the world at this time. So sad, so moving, but the longer you listen, the more complex your feelings become. Wonderful.

  I haven't been back to this site in a while as I had forgotten about it until I heard something that must've triggered a memory. There are so many new sounds compared to when I was last here and this is one of the more powerful ones - it's hard to describe the feelings it evokes.

  This is amazing. It calmed me down instantly.

  Duduk is wonderful!

  This one is my favorite. I can listen to it all day long. Best generator.

  If emotions were sounds, I think 'Duduk Song' would be at the heart of each sound.

  I love the Duduk Song, especially as part of a super generator. A little sad, I suppose, but more thoughtful and calming.

  This is amazing. I'm mostly a water sounds kind of lady but Duduk Song is something else altogether. It makes me slow down and feel truly present in the current moment. Thank you for this new sound, and for all the wonderful work you do.

  Oooooh, try to combine this with the Didgeridrone. Wonderful.

  Oooooh, try to combine this with Yakutian voices! What a great choice to pick one fundamental note for so many musical generators! :)

  I think the noise a Duduk creates is the only noise in the world that I could listen to throughout my entire life and never once suppress it. As a sufferer of quite severe panic attacks, I have found that this helps me become calm. Thank you for this.

  I absolutely love the duduk. A number of years ago I bought myself one, and haven't had time to practice lately, but this inspires me to get back into playing.

  This plus Windy Day is very calming together. Love it!

  Yes. Yes. Yes. I saw this and immediately clicked on it. I love the sound of the dukduk, thank you!

  I heard it in Armenia, in the mountains. This music brings to me a lot of memories of the Caucasus.

  I have always adored this sound and I never knew the name of the instrument. Thank you so much for giving it a "face" to this hauntingly beautiful sound! I love the peaceful bittersweet sense it brings-as if to say there is good and bad in the world, but not to be saddened by it as there is balance and harmony to have both since one cannot exist without the other. Thank you again!

  I'm very fond of this combined with Sleeping Dragon. Set both of them on the slowest animation speed and call it a night!

  Yes, it did make me cry. I never thought it could.

  This made me feel quiet and calm inside. Thank you for yet another musical experience!

  It might not have made me cry, but it did the opposit. I was sad and crying before I listened to this generator and guess what? I'm not crying anymore. This sound is so beautiful.

  This is so hauntingly beautiful and incredibly soulful. I feel like I'm in mourning for something I can't quite place. Perfect background ambiance for quiet contemplation. Thank you for this one!

  My "sad" favorite : "Duduk Song" and "Arctic Wolves" and "Winter Walk" all animated. Thank you.

  Forever my favorite instrument. Thank you for this generator.

  Using the Meditation Room with this is like listening to the soundtrack of life changing with time.

  Sometimes, it sounds like a saxophone! Interesting!

  Combining the Duduk with Wind Noise is haunting beyond belief, yet somehow comforting.

  Just as I find the mix of the Canyon Drone and Distant Thunder (both animated) haunting, mixing the Duduk Song with Distant Thunder and animating their sliders pulls me into a spooky yet relaxing world where ancient mysteries wait to be discovered. This new generator is an instant favorite for me.

  Sad yet so beautiful and relaxing... One of the few sounds that make my mind slow down. Combine with Distant Thunder for better results!

  Brings back so many memories from that mysterious and enchanting country...

  This is beautiful! I know this sounds so nebulous now, but the Duduk Song(s) are so mournful, like a yearning almost. I feel like I've finally found the sound I always hear in "epic soundtracks." This goes great with the Wind soundscapes, too.

  Amazing sound. Immediately causes a more-than calm, even transcendental state of mind. Kind of an acoustic reality check ;) Very impressive!

  Haunting and beautiful. I find no better or more accurate ways to describe it. Thank you for this one.
