Welcome back to the village!

myNoise Medieval Village is one of our most popular soundscapes. Originally designed for Role Play Gamers, the village has also become a favorite of many other users looking for tranquility. This time, the village sounds much quieter: today is the blacksmith's day off - haha! We are standing close to the fountain. A broken-hearted minstrel improvises a few melodic lines, while passers-by throw coins at him. You sit on a wooden bench, along the village's main paved street, and enjoy observing the calm life around you.

  I am a student studying for exams and myNoise has been such a help to block out family noise and support my concentration! Thank you so much!


  Beautiful. Toss him a coin!

  The horses riding is one of my favourite sounds on this. Very calming sounds but also very nice when I need to focus on schoolwork.

  The longer I listen to this mix, the more I appreciate how nicely it is composed and blended together. Thanks!

  The king is dead. Long live the king.

  You sit by the fountain with a fresh baked good in hand. It's too early for the market to be busy, but you can feel the village waking up as more and more people begin to trickle into the square. As you eat, a nearby minstrel plays a gentle tune. You relish the calm of the hour, knowing it will soon be replaced by chaotic noise and bustling activity.

  I discovered this website by mistake, 've to say it was an amazing mistake...I tried almost all the soundscapes present here... but those melodies by the Minstrel in this totally made my mood... I think this is the best one for me and my studies... Thank you!

  My family and I sometimes volunteer at the renaissance fair in out town. This sounds exactly like the end of the day there.

  I’m an HSP and concentrating on learning was so hard for me . But then I made a mistake and clicked on this website while searching for smth... Best mistake in my life! I’m so grateful for this website.

  I think this might me my favorite :D

  Welcome to the land of no technological advances!

  Toss a coin to your witcher.

  Nothing like sitting next to the fountain while a beggar collects their daily coins.

  Really love how with one goes with Oak Song "Spring Again" setting!

  This one just makes me feel very peaceful, somehow.

  Natural feeling of tranqulity. I love this so much!

  Depending on the current situation, I choose different generators to help me study. This one is perfect when I sit at my desk in front of the window and I have to use my laptop's speakers. I can pretend the sound comes from the actual village beyond my window and it blends perfectly with the few sounds that the real village makes (mostly dogs, chicken and birds). It really helps my concentration!

  The guitar reminds me a little of Nick Drake's song "Horn," from the album Pink Moon. That's a good thing!

  This + Rainy Riverbank is my reason to live.

  Lovely early morning vibes, so glad I found this website :>

  Pair this with Folk Tradition (turn the flutes up and all the others down) ... Enjoy ...

  This is pretty awesome :D Nice and calming break from music mixes and nice to work to.

  This website is absolute GENIUS. Love it love it love it.

  Nice lonely sound.

  You pluck at your lute, wondering where everyone else could possibly be. All you know is your name, your music, and your land. thought you knew your land. Your melodies fade into the air and dissolve into the wind. You are alone, but you are not lonely.

  The lute and bells :) This website is absolute gold.

  This is a lovely soundscape, but I think it's misnamed, because the music the "minstrel" is playing doesn't sound sad or broken-hearted to me at all.

  I am the minstrel.

  Another great generator, very atmospheric and meditative.

  With :6 speed this sounds like a sinister village with a deep humming bell. Besides that another fantastic sound composition. With the dogs barking in the background, the bell ringing and the crowd around you, a very spatial experience. The fountain and coin clicking are relaxing.


  Am really liking this generator, you are a genius! Almost a Renaissance Faire, but with more (and older) character. These noises even put pictures into my head.

  I love "Medieval Village" so I was really excited to find about this one. I think I will use this atmosphere a lot, and maybe swap the Minstrel for other instruments for different moods. This website is beyond amazing.
