RE: Music File Compressed 1,000 Times Smaller than MP3

Researchers at the University of Rochester have digitally reproduced music in a file nearly 1,000 times smaller than a regular MP3 file.

The music, a 20-second clarinet solo, is encoded in less than a single kilobyte, and is made possible by two innovations: recreating in a computer both the real-world physics of a clarinet and the physics of a clarinet player.

The achievement, announced today at the International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing held in Las Vegas, is not yet a flawless reproduction of an original performance, but the researchers say it's getting close.

Wow, Jonathan Sherwood was REALLY stretching for a good headline hook. This has nothing to do with compression!

Virtual instruments are nothing new. I think it's pretty cool how they're analyzing specific instruments and trying to reverse engineer the technicalities of how something was performed though, that's the real story here.

This is the stuff I've been dreaming about doing. Frames of video are stacked on top of each other like playing cards. You can then cut into that object any way you want. Patterns in the video then become apparent.

The videos show how this works more effectively than words can. I'd like to see this work on a realtime stream, I'm sure that's coming though.
