I've noticed several different sounds/ music in Minecraft and I know they all mean something but sometimes I just cant figure out what. Can someone please help me and everyone else that have no clue what sounds in Minecraft mean :smile.gif: Thank you :smile.gif:

Pleasant music is just randomly played by your client.
The ominous sound means that there's a 3x3x3 block of air entirely at light level zero somewhere within 20 blocks of you. This is usually caused by a natural cave, but you can induce it artificially by having sealed, torchless rooms 3x3x3 in various places in your shelter. Do note that you'll occassionally also have monster spawns in these spaces, so you'll also have monster skittering sounds; if you want the ominous sounds without the monsters, then make it a 3x3x4 space, then layer stone slab or glass on the bottom of the inside.
The ominous sound will also occur in the Nether because the only natural light sources there are lava, glowstone, and fires. There is no sun or moon, and the top and bottom of the Nether are both bedrock, so any space more than 15 blocks (not counting diagonals) from lava, glowstone, or fires will be at light level zero.
