musicians are a silly bunch.

on the other hand, i vaguely recall that when the US phone network went digital,
callers found the lack of noise on the line disconcerting: it sounded like the line
was dead.  so they ended up adding back some digitized noise.  a "comfort sound",
if you will.

note:  this could be apocryphal.  i heard it perhaps a decade ago.
