I came across this article years ago and felt it does a concise job of explaining audio compression.
This is a rather interesting article:
“I analyzed the chords of 1300 popular songs for patterns. This is what I found.“
It’s from 2005 but it’s still good.
p.s. Sorry about the audio. The volume was so loud it just crushed all the frequencies.
The amazing guitar + drums duo Doppio performs a set at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco at the Music Video Race Screening Party event. The 48-hour video competition paired Doppio the band with the team The Outer Avenues to put a story to the song “Cobra”—also available on Doppio’s just-released album. This video features a little bit of “Return” followed by the live version of “Cobra”.
Catch Doppio performing around the San Francisco Bay Area. For more info + to get their album:

“This all-laptop show will feature luminous and dark harmonic spectra, and doppler’d / computer-restructured time — especially time-warped and processed sound from my field recordings of the excited crowds, street percussion, snatches of Cantonese opera, etc. from the Cheung Chau Bun Festival (長洲包山節), with synth’d sound overlay.”
