When Your House Sings to You...

I think I would quickly tire of this, but it's an interesting concept. The Singing House is a Quintron invention and it's controlled by the weather. I originally thought that it might be soothing, but after watching it, I'm not so sure. I'm one of those people who isn't a fan of wind chimes. I like them, and some of them are very clever and gorgeous with pretty sounds, but I don't like them all the time (as in when I'm trying to sleep or concentrate) and the nature of wind chimes is that there is no "off:" button. I'm guessing there would be an off button to this invention, so that's a plus in its favor.

I do like my quiet.

Preliminary studies may have shown it as calming, but long-term studies might show violence.... I could NOT handle any of that. I don't need to be reminded when lightning is striking....

I like quiet and when I'm working, I really have to have quiet (unlike a lot of other authors who need music, I just couldn't function that way. I'd be listening to the words). That said, I do like the sound of rain on the roof, but that's more like white noise. This seems more...intrusive.
