Just as the mind tries to make facial forms from chaos (ie. the face on Mars), it also tries to make sense of noises. I have this happen to me
everyday in the shower. I would swear music is playing somewhere in the house, even though there was only exterior noises like lawn mowing or a TV on
a non-musical show. It's why you can never pick out a word, or a song....it's not real, it's just your mind trying to assemble things into a known
pattern. With vision, it's called matrixing.
For several years, I would hear the phone ring everytime I was in the shower. I figured audio matrixing, then stepped out of the shower to grab a bar
of soap and realized it was a real noise. I went to investigate, wrapped only in a towel, grabbed the now silent phone and checked caller ID.
Nothing. Went back to the shower past my non-talking cockatiel, who wolf-whistled (a known trick), laughed (unknown talent), then mimicked the phone,
perfectly, also an unknown talent. He only did it when I was in the shower alone, never my husband.
By all means, investigate the noises you hear. But expect the mundane.
