A Haunting Journey
This generator brings to mind the endless walk of a lone pilgrim, lost in his thoughts and prayers. Like all generators on myNoise, this one has no true end, bringing to mind the road traveled by our pilgrim - repetitive, but ever-changing. Journey along part of that road yourself by humming along with the last slider; you may find the melody remains with you long after you leave.
This soundscape is an attempt to answer the recurring request for a generator featuring a hang drum, a melodic percussion instrument shaped like an UFO, often used in meditative music. Technically speaking, what you are currently hearing is not a hang drum, but a RAV drum - a cheaper, yet high-quality variant. The RAV sounds different: it offers a longer sustain and richer harmonics than its cousin. The creation of this generator required that I learn to play the RAV, a time-consuming process involving daily practice that unfortunately delayed the generator's release.

Big fan of this generator with Distant Thunder - as the storm settles in, so does my resolve to finish the journey I began, one step at a time. Step, step, drip, rumble..
This is one of the generators that reminds me why I keep coming back to this site - it is exactly what I needed for inner peace and spiritual harmony. I like it with the summer rain setting from Distant Thunder. Another one that makes me feel the need to up my donation.
This, with Duduk Song set to "Duduk Duet" and Distant Thunder set to "Summer Rain" has been beautiful.
It's great in G# modus to play a duet with it on my japanese tonescaled tonguedrum.
I've been listening to this generator for an entire week now and I still haven't grown tired of it. It's so soothing and just fits any moment. To dull out my surrounding, to focus, to relax. It has it all.
What an amazing new generator. I love the sound of hang drums, so ethereal. This is a really calming and strengthening sound at the same time.
The most melodic, calming and - at the same time - inspiring and overwhelming sound! Thank you So Much! Hang Drum plus Vocals is an amazing mix of the feel. Shivers, goosebumps and positive thoughts!
This is just a great generator, finally could focus after these holiday hectic and finished some of the code I've started in early December.
WOW, what an awesome new generator.
Take this generator's Bass, Rhythm, and Varied Hits sliders and play them with the Water and Birds and the Grass Wind of "Meadow Land," plus the third Bowed slider of "Three Friends of Winter." The amalgam is something uncanny. I call it "The Steppe."
It makes me feels timeless, really beautiful.
Awesome together with Spring Walk!
This with Aeternitas's Ohm settings and Northern Light's Magnetic Field setting is something magical, 10/10 recommend you try out.
LOVE this one. Sounds great combined with "Chapel Voices".
♥ I tried setting it to half speed just to see what it was like, and...wow. Sleepy and pensive, maybe a little foreboding. Almost hypnotizing.
♥ Currently running The Pilgrim with 88 Keys and Forest Life. Very calming and focusing. Thank you, Stphane!
♥ Look's like I have a new favorite!
♥ Just incredible! I swear this is better than any other sleeping aid.
♥ This is one of my favourite sliders! Combined with Rain On A Tent and with the root note set as A#, it almost sounds like a magical wind chime, and really helps me calm down and concentrate.
♥ This is often how the inside of my head feels/sounds! Different repeating patterns, but repeating at different times. Love the combination of musical instruments and humming. Can't wait to mix it in a stack.
♥ Reminds me a lot of Crystal Peak from Hollow Knight!
♥ This sounds even better when combined with Thunder & Rain!
♥ A very welcome and calming distraction while chats rage about YouTube being down.
♥ This soundscape sounds both reminiscent and unfamiliar at the same time, creating a calm but energising atmosphere! Thank you for all your hard work!
♥ Combine The Pilgrim with Cinematic East, Isochronic Tones, and Take It Easy percussion on x2 speed for an energizing mix!
♥ The moment I clicked on this, it became my new favorite. I don't always use the animate function, but it is perfectly suited for this soundscape. A gorgeous combination of sounds. Thank you!
♥ Another great addition to the site!
♥ This reminds me of some parts of the Journey game soundtrack, by Austin Wintory. So peaceful... I love it :)
♥ Quite ethereal. I'm finding The Pilgrim blends really well with Northern Lights and Desert Wind.
♥ Just personalized my own setting... Feeling the humming right inside my mind. Playing with the rythm and sounds in the background. Some journey! <3
♥ This is terrific combined with Gregorian Voices! And I'm so impressed with your dedication to the craft of creating these generators! Thank you.
♥ I'm not sure if there's such a thing as a Zen Clock, but if there is then this is what it sounds like, sure enough.
♥ Holy moly! Stock, it sounds like a track from Age of Empires. But like others have said, kick in the sliders and you get a truly dynamic soundscape that you can listen to for ages!
♥ I saw the 'Pilgrims' setting on Buddhist Ceremony and had to try it in combination with The Pilgrim (set on Canon with Voices). Unexpectedly beautiful; it's a natural for meditation.
♥ The best when using slider animation. Can listen for hours!
♥ Open up this, Thunder & Rain, and Isochronic Tones and you have a pretty focused noisescape that has the benefits of the anxiety killing thunder and plus the inspiring humming and drums. May need to turn down the tones so that they are just in the background though. Pilgrim is definitely a fav of mine.
♥ More like this, please!
♥ Just discovered "The Pilgrim" - so evocative. I have already wandered through towering medieval forests, over windswept plains between bare mountain ranges and drifted along mighty rivers- and the road goes ever on and on...
♥ This generator with the animation mode set to 'deep' combined with the Summer Night magic generator (or, presumably, any other generator with lots of cicadas) is probably the nicest and most relaxing thing I've ever heard; I love how this generator is not just the RAV drum but also includes humming - it's such a great organic touch.
♥ The Pilgrim + Lake Life = Takes me to memories of Algonquin Park at dusk. The subtle melody, the humming and the loons combine to make a beautiful chorus.
♥ Your story behind this generator made me make a donation. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do, to bring us these heavenly sounds!
♥ This is one of my new favorites. I pair it with "In the Sky" for a truly meditative and beautiful experience.
♥ The work you do to bring these generators to life is amazing. Learning an instrument is dedication itself, thank you!
♥ It's a wonderful generator you offer us here, another one! Thank you so much Stphane, I am a true fan. And to thought you had to learn how to play the RAV drum just to present this generator, it's so cool! Thank you :)
♥ This is the perfect soundscape for my morning meditation & yoga!
♥ In agreement another poster, this absolutely sounds Odinic. Gorgeous atmosphere of internal and external travel and discovery. As man walks through the landscape, he discovers not only a new world within, but one without.
♥ This makes me think of Odin, the archetypal wanderer and seeker of knowledge. Both a king with a kingdom, a wife, children - and yet, at the end, a solitary figure in the world. We all must make our own path as pilgrims on this Earth. The humming, patient and melancholy, the steady beat (like footsteps) - this generator is very Odinic.
♥ This is one of my favorite "new" soundscapes. I have combined it with a "natural noise" generator (like Irish Coast) to create the feeling of someone wandering a landscape...
♥ Thank you, thank you, thank you. When I am anxious, stressed or just too worked up, I find that one of the few things that calms me down is the soothing sound of hang drums (or related instruments like the RAV). This will be perfect for keeping me on track at work, calm at home and in a great frame of mind all day. Thanks for putting in the time and dedication to make this happen!
♥ This is so uplifting and cheering. You're very clever to produce something that contains such a repetitive motif, and yet it doesn't get tiring - there's so much going on. To me it is so evocative of a lost, probably never existed England - Glastonbury and Canterbury and even a nice version of English Folk Horror films! Thank you.
♥ I like it with Summer Walk. The drum sound is wonderful.
♥ "The creation of this generator required that I learn to play the RAV". GOD the fact that you learned an entire new instrument to meet the requests of visitors to your free website is exactly why I donate!! Thank you, this new soundscape is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!
♥ Love this one... The humming is cool. I would love a deep dwarven humming like in the Hobbit.
♥ "I am a wanderer and mountain-climber!" he said to his heart. "I love not the plains, and it seemeth I cannot long sit still. And whatever may still overtake me as fate and experiencea wandering will be therein, and a mountain-climbing: in the end one experienceth only oneself." (Nietzsche)
♥ I have been listening to this all day at work. It has completely distressed my frazzled brain. Thank you so much.
♥ Reminded all over again - my starred favorites are good, but always try out the new generators!
♥ I cannot get over how well this Humming complements the Yakutian Voices generator!
♥ These settings make me feel like I'm on a full-on pilgrimage.
♥ Great sounds and instruments mix in this generatorLove to know that this is your full creative and artistic composition. Well done, Stephane.
♥ This is such an amazing generator, it's already helping me to focus and I will use it for meditation as well. Thank you for your dedication to this website!
♥ A nice variety of sounds, across the range, with subtle humming. Good for those wanting a meditation with "pep".
