intake growl

I've never understood why there is intake growl only while moving or under load. Why is there no growl when the car is standing still and revving it? Help me understand lol.

Throttle plate closed so no sound from the combustion chamber escapes.

It doesn't close 100% but a wider opening allows more sound in addition to the air.

When the transmission is in Park, the rpms go up too fast, and engine noises drown out the intake noise. When the engine is under load, you get the intake sound, then the rpms increase slowly.
