how does this passage use cacophony

“Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One, two. Why, then, ’tis time to do ’t. Hell is murky! Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can \call our power to account?Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him."

Although this is Shakespeare and should have some kind of rhythm and "good" sounds, Lady Macbeth is all over the place. Her vowel sounds are used as she goes back to many of the important scenes throughout the play (one two 'tis time to do it - the bell ringing for the death of Duncan) but there is no consistency. And many of the lines remind the audience of the sounds that happen throughout the play.
