As the neighbour of a pianist,a clarinetist and a violinist, I can tell you that any stuff I hear from them usually is just background the way I might hear a telly on in the background. I certainly am not consciously listening out for them with a critical ear
My experience is the same. I used to have a neighbor with kids who played the piano. I could hear them playing it it but paid no attention to it and it didn't bother me at all as long as it was not at stupid o'clock.

I'm sitting at my desk in tears. An apparently deranged arsonist has attacked the studios of Kyoto Animation in Kyoto, Japan. The BBC is reporting 33 deaths, with many more in hospital, some in critical condition.
Kyoto Animation has a high reputation in the industry and in the fandom. They have been pushing the limits of the medium over the past several years, really raising the bar on art and storytelling.
I feel the same way I did when Notre Dame burned, maybe even more so because of the deaths of many people whose work has brought me so much happiness over the years.

Originally this would have been a 'Happy Day' one as the main road over our local pass is closed for several weeks. This means there's a lot less traffic in my way as I get near the autobahn on my bike. However, this morning it became an Aaargggh as obviously the GPS shows a 'backway' which avoids both the closed pass road and the twenty kilometre official diversion. And that 'backway' is a lovely quiet stretch of steep road through the woods - and part of one of my circuits.
Slight compensation is the look on the folks' faces when they have crossed the narrow bridge at the bottom and are suddenly faced with a 12% slope, and again when they come out of the woods at the top and see nothing which resembles the sort of road they were expecting. The little things in life...
