Yeah, I have mostly questions myself! lol Sound is a wave, so I guess we could say it is organized already, but I really meant more "organized" than a simple wave.

Honestly, my idea is purely arbitrary and subjective. Static on the radio, the tinnitus in my right ear - NOT music. Waves on the beach, washing machine, etc might be perceived as music. One hing those have in common, vs tinnitus or static, is some sort of change over time. Maybe that's a key? Who knows? I'm just free-flowing my thoughts here, Larry.
