In my childhood I was fortunate to live in a large Victorian house that was beautifully quiet. In recent years I live in a communal apartment and have experienced being a victim of “sub-base” noise harassment from neighbours. My defense mechanism was to create a genre of sound/music designed to counteract troublesome environmental noise.
