NOISE

is an umbrella term used to describe a number of definitions. For example, noise, in a derogatory fashion may imply the production of sound, of music or singing is unwanted and simply seen as a disturbance of the otherwise peaceful environment. Otherwise, noise can be considered anything which interferes with, obscures, reduces, or otherwise affects the clarity of an on-going process, for example, placing a broadband router next to a TV will hamper its performance due to the TV producing (apart from literal noise) radio wave noise.

NOISE: "Noise, one of the more irritable factors which can ruin a countryside, according to some research, however, the line between noise, music and 'non-noise' is still blurred. In terms of devices, noise refers to radio waves which are emitted by other devices such as TVs or phones which can disrupt internet routers for example."
