Raw audio of a dishwasher droning while active. Looking at this through a spectrogram reveals a huge amount of harmonics and partials based around a fundamental of 100Hz, which is why this sound is so alluring to hum along with. I highly recommend listening with headphones and trying to hum at a perfect 5th above the low drone - the "fundamental" - and feel your voice resonating with this universal principal of sound - the harmonic series.
