The Sound of a Seguia by Night

We've already visited Nkob's palm garden and introduced its seguia, the irrigation system that waters the date palm grove. But now we have returned to the exact same spot in the late evening, at the time of the last prayer call. The croaking and chirping of night-time critters has replaced the music of songbirds, and the warmest hours over the day have passed. After a long and exhausting day, this enchanting haven invites you to rest and meditate under a beautiful, starry night.

  This, combined with the 50Hz electric hum, brings me to the hot summer nights trying to sleep next to the window in my grandmother's house. It's strange because I don't even like to sleep there, but now I was missing the sound of it.

  The prayer call is an unexpected twist to this generator. I use it when I study and is very relaxing but doesn't make me want to fall asleep!

  Absolutely beautiful. I kept this one on all night while I slept. The prayer call takes me to another place and time. Love this wonderful website.

  I started using myNoise at work, to help focus, but now my partner and I play this soundscape at night to help him sleep. He's a longtime insomniac with recent stress problems, and this has been a godsend. Thank you!

  ← Calm Night Part 2. I combine this with A Bird's Paradise, look for Part 1 there!

  This one + Telecaster licks (just the Improv slider) = Iñárritu's Babel !

  This has just enough sound in it to make this apartment bedroom sound like I'm closer to the expanse of nature rather than a city. <3

  A dry evening with just the prayer call and the most musical insects on the planet.

  It's interesting to hear a different style of prayer call. In my place, it's so much more musical than Nkob's, and I prefer it more than this one. Still, it makes me feel like I'm sitting in my backyard after the sun sets.

  Knocks me out in about five minutes, perfect for sleeping.

  This setting is perfect to study to, not too many high tones and lots of water to relax and focus on.

  Reminds me of visiting relatives in Bangladesh as a kid. Evocative. I absolutely love this website.

  Brilliant. Gathers the thoughts perfectly.

  Gorgeous.

  I love the sound of the prayer call — not too intrusive, but a haunting and beautiful background addition. I could fall asleep to this!

  I'm impressed - is this really planet Earth? The prayer call is really haunting - too many bad associations instilled by shitty mass media, I wonder???

  Try this with earphones by night and darkness. Is it a wolf? A ghost? A siren? There's something terrible yelling - and it scares me!

  Oh, it's so peaceful and relaxing. Just what I need to fall asleep.

  Simply awesome (as usual). Finally some crickets!

  This reminds me very much of the riverside near the house where I grew up. x

  This is so peaceful and meditative. My new favourite generator.

  I love the atmosphere, it's wonderfully haunting

  I found the prayer call to be terribly upsetting to the balance of this generator, and muted it immediately. Then, the frogs were intrusive. This generator is not one of my favorites, but here's some crickets... Editor's note: Hey, that's exactly why I provide all these sounds as individual sliders!

  This is one of the sounds I have missed — listening to the song of crickets and water flowing into the garden pond. So glad to have this, thank you so much!

  It's eerie how sounds can bring back memories. I enjoyed playing with the sliders, but as I stumbled upon this combination, I had a vivid flashback of Turkey. Astonishing :) --C

Usage

Each slider controls a particular audio stream. Adjust sliders to taste and mood.

Unlike the other sound generators, this soundscape is not calibrated. This means that sliders are not associated to exact frequencies and that the generator's output will not turn into a pink-like spectrum when sliders are horizontally aligned.

The Animate! button turns the soundscape into an slowly evolving texture. Use this feature if you intend to listen to the generator over a long period of time.
