Kit Mk4 - whine noise when printing

Hi everyone,

I am wondering if the noises my printer is making are normal. Attached to this clip is a video in which you can hear it. Sometimes (but not always) when the nozzle travels along the curved path of the print you can hear a sort of a whine sound. I am trying to see if I can reduce it somehow.
Currently (and in this video) I removed the feet of my enclosure and it is laying on a 2cm tall rubber mat (washing machine sound-proof mat) - it has reduced the noise a bit.

I am not sure it is the y-movements that cause this, but also when I just move the print bed by hand I get a pretty loud noise. Does that happen to everyone's printer? Maybe someone has a video for comparison handy?

Thank you very much for any comments.

Other not relevant info: I am new to the hobby ; it's really a blast. The print I am doing is attached to this post for no reason ; it's a coffee bean funnel that probably fits only my manual wall attached coffee grinder.

Sounds reasonably normal to me, but it is difficult to tell from the video as you cannot tell how loud it is

I am trying to figure out why neither the video I attached displays nor the model I tried to put in the post appears. Maybe it's moderation ; apologies that the post is useless without the video.
