As urban human beings cluttered together in artificial cities and dwellings, we tend to live surrounded by noise.

The drills of the pesky roadworks just outside your bedroom window; the beep of the overground train as the door closes on your backpack; or the high pitch of the dubstep-techno-remix playing through the maxed-out earphones of the angry-looking youth sat next to you on the bus.
