The parking brake pads make a similar noise when they delaminate from the metal hoop inside the rotor hat. They kind of float around and make noise only when they hang-up or rub against the rotor. Mine went so long that the peices eventually chunked and settled into the bottom of the assembly, where you could hear them slosh around. Not too hard to inspect if you remove the wheel, hang the caliper, and unbolt the rotor. On mine, the left side made noise when I turned right.
