Other observations:

The construction on my street has increased due to renovation on a nearby restaurant. This morning I decided to listen to the beats of the different construction tools. The pounding of the drill into the cement had a rhythmic tone that felt almost musical. I felt as if the person operating the machinery probably needed to drill on a number count to maintain control of it. I listened to the drill stop every 10 seconds and continue on in 5 rhythmic beats. I drowned out all the other construction noises and was able to hear the harmony between the drill and the cement ground.
