Perhaps one way to convey the annoyance of nose is to compare it to what is=
 now popularly called "photo bombing" - messing up someone's photo by slipp=
ing someone or something incongruent into the frame without the photographe=
r realising. Everyone understands the effect that has on the intended effec=
t of a photo, so why not a sound recording?

A short noise like a cough can  "photo bomb" a short section of a recording=
. A plane that takes so long to pass overhead that the next one is already =
audible bombs the whole thing.

Do we have an equivalent term for photo bombing for sound recording?
