Embrace the darkness

Working on a new eerie soundscape ended up in something creepy, but surprisingly calming.

Human beings have an ancient and complex relationship with the dark. From prehistoric campfires, to the bright neon night-cities of today, we've been trained over the eons to always flee toward the light — for who knows what might be lurking in the shadows. In the absence of light the mind is left to wander. Imagination brings forth and unleashes long forgotten primal beasts.

Now, embrace that darkness. Close your eyes, breathe deeply. Let the unknown envelop you. Let your subconscious run wild into oblivion.

  I discovered this the other day, and when I took my headphones off, my ears had stopped ringing!

  Currently using this with the isocronic tones set to inspired, and moonlight forest. This is a great background for writing a short story for my creative writing class. I love the almost haunting tones mixed with the sounds of animals.

  I was writing a story as I listened to this beautiful, serene, and haunting soundtrack. It really helped me to express my feelings into the pages. Highly recommend.

  When a mist settles over the forest, Ronja soon finds herself lost in the mist, going around in circles and hearing laughter from dancing figures in the distance.

  This + just the lullaby slider on Shusher = absolutely terrifying.

  Perfect for reading Junji Ito.

  Why, why the Darkness?! The "Ultra" preset sounds as the element of Light itself.

  Listening to this with Solfeggio Tones 69.3hz and 285hz, with an Isochronic 0.9 and 6hz undertow. Very much digging it; Brain Hacking all the way!!!

  I like this... Feels like being on a ship in the endless expanse of space :D

  This is absolutely otherwordly, and paired with the meditation bell I feel like I'm drifting into space, and the bell rings every minute to make sure I don't lose myself.

  High bass sounds like the Martians' call from The War of the Worlds.

  I can describe the mood as "magic": if you're afraid of the unknown, it can even horrify. But if you're ready to change yourself, if you believe in miracles, they happen. Firstly only in mind, and THEN...

  As for me, this eerie noise is NOT for work but for relaxation and self-hypnosis.

  'Metaphysical' and 'Floating' are twin brothers but they sound different: 'Floating' is almost neutral and 'Metaphysical' is pleasant and relaxing for me. The infrasound associates with a cave and the ultrasound associates with the light.

  I love this noise! It calms me down, but in a mystical way :-)

  Weirdly enough, I find this one is a good alternative for White/brown noise.

  I still listen to the old 'Speech Blocker' version as its spectrum is close to human voice. It sounds like an audial effect for those moments in (dark) fairy tales when miracles are happening. I believe that it can be healing.

  Gives off the feeling something dangerous is looming.

  This is so oddly calming! Really creates an interesting atmosphere to study in.

  (infinity & oblivion) = infidion

  I have ADHD and have trouble having inspiration to write and I have to do a presentation. This really helped. I have synesthesia too and this is green.

  I feel like the shadows themselves.

  The warm static wraps around you before you hear it. A song, perhaps. A lullaby? A hunting call? You don't know. You can't know more than the tingling of your skin and the low, continued hum your entire being responds with. Maybe you're a part of this odd melody. Maybe you're the child calmed by a parent's voice. Maybe you're the prey, cornered and ready. You don't know. You can't know. Goodluck.

  Beyond the absolute is void... you dont know where you are, all you see is an emptiness, you are enveloped by a incredible darkness unlike what you have ever seen before, close your eyes... oblivion awaits... pair the soundscapes together... and let oblivion be the main... you will hear the sound of true oblivion... unleash the other types these comments have with multiple windows of oblivion...

  You hear the void calling to you, opening your eyes, you see only darkness, you try to speak, but no words come, your voice is unheard, you walk through the darkness, the only thing you can hear, is a faint tune, one that brings back nostalgia, as you walk forward, you notice it growing darker, walking further into the shadows, you hear the sounds of crying, you look behind you, and collapse... the darkness surrounds you, you dont know where you are, the last thing you remember is going to bed, you think to yourself 'This has to be some sort of dream... or nightmare... right? You hear a haunting sound, one that fills you with an immense sadness, the calling of the void awaits, the dawn of night begins, sometimes that darkness calls to you, don’t run from your inner darkness, now accept it. Fleeing into the darkness spells death, fleeing into the light spells suffocation, fleeing to neutral spells emptiness.... but fleeing to the void, where all things meet at the edge of the absolute, this is where true chaos reigns... but yet... it is in this chaos where there is safety within you... so let the void lure you in... let yourself be enveloped by chaos... OBLIVION -by Elijah Webster

  A foreboding rumble with the unknown just at the edge of perception. I paired this with the isochronic tones (concentrated) playing quietly in the background and was actually able to sit and focus on my work.

  For a fleeting moment, I remembered something, but now it's gone. Lost to the void again.

  I was starting to get overwhelmed and overstimulated by all the sounds around me, and this was perfect!

  Void reaching for you with open arms.

  Someone suggested mixing with the Railroad and they were so right. I also suggest mixing with Sleeping Dragon and if you want a creepy forest vibe put on the primeval forest with the birds off and the mammal footsteps high.

  This would be a great soudntrack for a game. Love the ambiance! Keep up the good work!

  Comments seem fake with perfect grammar, so I’m testing it. (Editor to you: I didn’t spot any grammar mistake with yours... but then, I am not native English. Stephane)

  If I close my eyes, I can feel the darkness. Surprisingly calming.

  This is so creepy. I love this. It's even more creepy when you add the shushing generator and just have the lullaby thing on! ;)

  Listen for eternal calmness.

  If you mix this with "Examination Time", I feel like that's a good depiction of how you might feel when you sit down and realize that this might be a lot harder than you thought. A very haunting set of sounds - but very good!

  This soundscape combined with the lower settings of Railroads really makes you feel like you're on the train to the afterlife. Also surprisingly calming.

  Mix this with Black Hole and Dungeon RPG and it sounds like everything is dead and something looms in the dark. Perfect for what I’m writing about.

  I feel like it's the sound of the unknown - like standing on the edge of a cliff in the darkness, or looking from the deck of a boat into the sea's depth under moonlight. It's scary, but also exciting. Who knows what passes silently in the darkness, observing from beyond our perception. So cool, I love this site!

  Feels very sinister, I like it.

  This noise machine is so amazing! It really has worked wonders on me, and brought my inspiration back to me. About a year ago I lost all inspiration and was unable to draw, but this has brought my monstrous inspiration back and i'm pumping demented creatures out on paper so fast.

  I combined Oblivion with Arctic Wolves. It could be a creepy soundtrack for The Thing, but I just find it moody and relaxing.

  I like this soundscape. The word oblivion has a negative connotation akin to the loss of something. That's not how I feel now. This one has the power to help me focus in a state of constant alert similar to that of a predator more than a prey. A predator of good thoughts! ;)

  I've seen a lot cool techno things, BUT YOUR PROJECT IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE thank you so much for this job. I ll donate to you some day I promise! My live will never be the same.

  Felt like I was floating out in space. Got images of space beings when I closed my eyes!

  It sounds spooky, but really helped me concentrate and block out activity around me.

  Ok, so this, mixed with some primeval forest (sans birds/walking) is perfect. its soothing and has helped inspire my latest creations.

  I'm writing a book where the characters spend a lot of time wandering in the forest during winter. Pairing this with one of the forest sounds/walk sounds is perfect for me.

  This and Church played together: guaranteed fuel for writing angst and all things spooky. Also for writing troubling deep POVs, this combination is perfect!

  Put shushing and this on at the same time for instant nightmare fuel! I love it!

  The dark, yet ringing tones do wonders for a stubborn block. Love this.

  I'm been suffering from writer's block for a while, and this cured me. Thank you for this!

  It actually works. I've had a writers block for 2 weeks. Flipped this on, sat and looked at the page and it all started to flow into place.

  This is amazing! I know that I can accomplish my writing with this!

  Listening to this paired with Number Stations makes me feel kinda creeped out, but in a good way.

  There's something deep & dark in the night, but light chimes keep it just far enough away. It cannot hurt you at such distance, but the presence is clear.

  This is... beautiful. I think God does not resemble a man, but it is a place, which we are all inside, and this sound, this is how it speaks.

  This sounds good in a sadistic way.

  Something's moving in the dark...

  Wow I'm listening to this with a plumber working in my basement... The sudden unexpected bumps from under my feet work well with this mystery in my ears.

  My body pulses. It feels like something dark has possessed me, and tuned me into the secrets of the multiverse. I feel vibrations, almost like goosebumps rising. But there is no fear. There is a dark understanding.

  Feel my chest get tight, breathing difficult, heart starts to race...

  This setting makes me feel like I'm on an episode of Mr. Robot when Elliot explains stuff. This is awesome!

  So creepy with the Shepard Madness. It sounds like I'm in a horror movie, or an insane asylum.

  Honestly, this is my favorite. It reminds me of a purple moon kingdom, that stays right outside of being in the void. You float even a little to far into the darkness... and there you are. Among them. Creatures that are inherently evil, but are not always seen as such. They try to speak to you, getting your attention, nearly dragging you off to them, yet make no noise...

  In the cold perpetual darkness on Antarctica.

  Reminds me of Resident Evil and Silent Hill... Good job, man.

  This sounds like deep dark!

  I usually find theses kind of atmospheric sound really peaceful but this one is really creepy; it does his job completly!

  When I first listened to this noise, I felt as if there was something great and ominous being unleashed from within me.

  This literally struck fear into my heart after just a few seconds of listening to it. I honestly don't know how you did this so well.

  I don't have it set to animate, but it sounds... alive. The sound is living.

  Run. It sees you.

  The Depths, a dimension dark as shadow, and left to the shadows themselves... The good people are sent there, only to be killed by creatures that used to be as good as they were... And they never return...They were just like you... For all you know, they may steal you away someday... The shadows are watching...

  This paired with Beatae Memoriae generator gives an overall creepy atmosphere I can't help but love.

  Hello, darling. I hope this specific mix reaches you. When I need to feel like someone other than myself I meditate deeply... purposefully to this sound. Try to listen in darkness, headphones, and let this create a voice for your character.

  Reminds me of the Tower of Latria from Demon's Souls. Great atmosphere for various purposes!

  Only works with headphones, but it helps rattle and pulverise distractions for me. I can't listen to it for very long, but if I listen for between 3 and 15 minutes, it clears brain fog and static and lets me move on to other generators specific to the kind of work I need to be doing next. A great way to induce a mental spacial break between one task, or lack of tasks, and the next. <3

  I feel so... calm. You wouldn't think that something so eerie sounding would put you in such a state of rest.

  It's great for writing my survival book. At the moment the main character is in a abandoned hydro dam in the middle of Canada in winter.

  This one makes my heart pound, make sweat drip from my forehead, and it makes me feel scared, but in a good way. Another good job by!

  I'm listening to this while I read through "Brave New World". The sound is satisfyingly chilling.

  I feel numb, I can feel my heart, I'm on edge, I am in the night. The juxtaposition of the low and highs, with the mids creeping in, gets me every time.

  I've been both recording my own soundscapes and looking for sounds that engulf and help me sleep for some years now. Your website provides hands-down the best selection in one place. That the noise generators can all be customised, mixed, animated and so on is just brilliant. More sub bass please, it drowns out the snoring housemates!

  I listen to this soundscape while reading horror books, and it creates the perfect atmosphere... the world around me completely disappears!

  Wow... This creates an almost.. lost feeling. Maybe slightly disorienting, but strangely calm. Great job once again!

  Your chest constricts with anticipation. Is something there? More importantly, has it noticed you yet?

  The eerie rhythms of Oblivion generator mixed with Deserted sound generator create an eerie yet soothing sound patterns! Great companion when am studying!

  I find the lowest setting of this (perhaps oddly?) soothing. The others are quite creepy. All in all a very useful generator!

  Their game is a long game. They do not plan for the next year, or the next ten years. They have planned for eternity. "They" are after us. They have something in us we do not realize and we can never escape it nor "them". When we die of age, we have the last thought that it wasn't only just aging.

  A surprisingly flexible generator capable of emphatic 'heavy' noises that convey a sense of menace nicely. Great for adding to various environmental effects while writing horror stories.

  I use this when I study (use earphones)

  ← Click the heart. It reminds me of C418 - 13

  Nothing. Complete darkness all around. It's warm. Humid. Black. Except it isn't black; there's just nothing there. Anywhere. How did you get here? Is it even a real place? Who are you? Your memories are as black as the void that surrounds you...

  It is an unexpressible experience to read Three Body () by Liu Cixin (), with "Oblivion" in the background, and animation turned on. I am at Volume Two.

  Blurred, unfocused, messy. My head floats and shapeshifts. My brain changes. I'm calmer. I'm the product of an acid trip and a maniac.

  There is an entity watching you. Without gender, without soul. Turquoise, blueish, green-hair. Always watching. Always judging. Redirecting information. Intact. With only a moving head, and a estate body; the Vigilante.

  This one says, "Waking up on the floor of an empty apartment." Everything is dark, there is no color. The laws of physics are broken. You can't move or speak. You can barely hear a conversation between two people somewhere in another room. One of them is screaming and sobbing. You catch a reflection of "yourself" in the window. You don't recognize the face. Your skin is covered in festering sores.

  Eerie. There's something there... watching...

  Nothingness. Pure nothingness. Just floating in a void. Actually, that's a poor comparison. At least those in the void still exist. No black. No white. No existence. No non existence. Just... nothing. Emptiness. A void, without the void. The lights simply having gone out. There's nothing. That is what this sound says to me.

  This has never failed to give me goosebumps. It's eerie, ominous, and somehow comforting. Every time I think I have a favorite soundscape, I find another one to fall in love with.

  OMG, I really like this one!

  The bottom of a deep, dark, lake. Waiting, waiting, waiting. There, submerged into dark nothingness. It's cold. All you can see is the darkness and the faint, lying promise of light and sunshine at the top. Shadows dance in a sinister waltz upon the surface of the clear water, making their way down into the shivering depths below. You know you'll never be found. All you can do is wait.

  This sound made it so easy to fall asleep. It's unnerving but also soothing, which is eerie in-and-of itself. I may use this to help me write a creepy story later.

  I... I can see it. The sky, darkened, swirling black and red. Atop a decimated city, dark as the void and crumbling overhead. The shadow is spreading across the earth, and all is to come to an absolute end...

  Wow, this is like... it feels like it's massaging my brain. Listen with a good pair of headphones.

  How did you get here? In the dark. Alone. You feel the darkness. It pushes in on your mind.

  I'm looking out of the window of a spaceship, passing Gargantua. The fiery black heart core looms in my field of vision, blocking out all other objects in the sky. Everywhere is blackness. I can barely hear the steady hum of the Endurance as she creeps past the silent creature. We are alone, the two of us, and the silence of space falls like a trap around me. The silence of space is deafening.

  This is a perfect combo to write horror too. When put on slowest animate, the lows give it the perfect deathly ambiance, and when the highs kick in, it really gives you that spooky feeling!

  ← event horizon. so deep and calm, cold and yet warming. peace on the edge of frozen, motionless darkness. i just love the atmosphere this soundscape creates.

  With Slider-Setting 1kHz and animation, this reminds me of Ligeti's Lux Aeterna choir piece. Haunting, but interestingly enough not frightening.

  Ooh, very spooky! This would be great to play while playing a horror game that has no ambiance. (But then again, what's a horror game without ambiance? XD)

  Just WoW ! When i hear this, i feel like walking in destroyed city after III WW, looking for something in a dark cave, becoming insane or something like that :) Surprisingly it's calming.
