This meme farts like a MIDI.

It's the same concept. A technically inaccurate term that has become basically accepted into slang. The purpose of language is to convey thoughts, and language is very fluid - dictionaries don't make the language, the language makes the dictionary.

I guess I'm more curious about how a word that refers to the space of a three dimensional object became correlated with sound intensity. I can not find any link on when it was first used for that purpose and why. There has to be some good reason instead of just choosing some random word. Comparatively, even though the term "MIDI" being used for sound is completely incorrect, at least it is related to sound.
