The Distortion of Sound

  • Published 5 years ago

The documentary explores the topic of decline of sound quality in music. According to the documentary, the reason for decline is that music is distributed with lousy compression algorithms.

The problem, however, is that the documentary does not make the difference between data compression and dynamic range compression.

The documentary features interviews with writers, producers, rappers, mixers, music journalists, and many more people in the music business. Some of the artists making an appearance include Slash, Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki, and Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park.

The documentary was uploaded to YouTube using its own audio compression. However, some might say that the documentary has a tendency of belittling streaming and music services like Pandora, Spotify, and others. As they pose threat to the recording companies, the music world wants to make sure they have the monopoly.

Yes, it is great to listen to hi-fi music on hi-fi speakers. But not all of us can afford that luxury.
