Why Silent Drumming?

I'm a serial apartment drummer, having lived in apartments for the last 15 years or so and trying to keep up my drumming chops at the same time.

As a result I've become pretty good at hiding my drumming from my neighbors and not annoying them in general, while playing drums as much as I want to, when I want to.
