Stream a short documentary about the decline of sound quality in the age of compressed music, mp3s, and shitty computer speakers. The Distortion of Sound features several musicians, producers, and sound engineers lamenting about how they meticulously obsess over creating high quality music, only to have listeners "enjoy" the finished product on sub-standard equipment and/or use low quality sources (mp3s, You Tube, streaming services, etc).

Though some believe this film is only for snobby audiophiles, I choose to differ. Fans who stream music, tape recordings off You Tube, or purchase mp3s should at least get an idea of a musician's stance. Besides, the film illustrates the difference (with samples) of compressed vs non-compressed music.

Warning: there's a LOT of Linkin Park in the film, especially the first half, but regardless if you love or hate the band, the film is still educational. The Distortion of Sound also features Snoop Dogg, Quincy Jones, Slash, Hans Zimmer, Steve Aoki, and more.
