Watch the rthymic patterns as you listen to sleepy crickets and gentle waves :)
TAP to adjust the colors :)

Thanky :) ... as usual most of this wasn't planned and quite accidental...
Was not going to sleep and while watching news they had a decorative square pattern behind the person talking the news... so I first copied that pattern...
... them while watching my patterns I was inspired to add a pulse which first i placed behind the squares, but it looked really wierd so I put it in front of the squares...
... then i added a sound effect to the pulse... since it moved kinda like a wave I made it sound like a wave...
Then I spent forever tweaking a sound for the squares and stumbled upon the effect that sounded like crickets....
... so i tweaked everything to support that final combination ;)

The crickets surprised me, it doesn't sound very 8-bitty and I wouldn't have been sure if it's possible at all :)

The crickets surprised me too .... I was tweaking that sound for something soft with a light echo, and adding a warble helped take the sharp edge off... and "magically" the cricket sound resulted...
I doubt if I could randomly tweak that again, so here are the settings if anyone is interested...
SND: TRI 8 OFF
ENV: D F 3 3
LFO: F B F 0
....... TRI OFF OFF ON
And the actual code that creates the chirp, the code assumes SOUND 1 is set up for the sound...
IWAIT=(IWAIT+1) MOD CHIRP
IF IWAIT=0 THEN
PLAY 1,90,15 SOUND 1

I discovered that tweaking the note and duration with the PLAY command can sometimes create sound effects much different than what you are hearing while testing the settings in SOUND COMPOSER...
I sometimes tweak a lot, and this one required going back and forth tweaking both the settings in COMPOSER and settings with PLAY command until I hit upon the cricket chirp ;)
