    BABA: “The Distortion of Sound” Documentary (Video)

    “We live in a world where if you’re content with it, hey, even if it is better – so what.” Man, this struggle is real.

    Besides the fact that this is just a cool documentary, the initial thought about how over-compressed most music is nowadays really stood out to me. Being a music producer for over 10 years now, and watching how the texture and individual elements are often eliminated (and now sometimes just ignored in the production process), I feel I can personally relate to this. I often mix my music in multiple speaker systems, including the shitty speakers and headphones, just so that low-quality listeners can judge my music – and it’s so counter intuitive. I know a lot of producers that tend to overdo their compression to compete with what’s now standard, too, and it hurts my soul a little bit each time. That’s enough about me though. Press play above. Interviewees are listed below:

    Mike Shinoda • Slash • Quincy Jones • Snoop Dogg • Steve Aoki • Hans Zimmer • Andrew Scheps • Manny Marroquin • Dan the Automator • Lianne La Havas • Kate Nash • A.R. Rahman • Neil Strauss • Chris Ludwig • Greg Timbers • Dr. Sean Olive
