Presented by audio giant HARMAN, and told directly by artists, producers, music lovers and fans, 'The Distortion of Sound' reveals the gap between the music that artists create in the studio and on the stage and how fans experience it on the go.
The documentary delves into the development of portable audio equipment and music streaming, which led to the normalization of digital music compression and a degradation of sound quality. It also addresses the proliferation of low quality audio products and the industry's emphasis on fashion and mobility at the expense of a quality listening experience.
'This movie is a wakeup call about what we are missing and how technology has changed our musical experience,' said world-renowned record producer,
'There is a great irony that as technology advances and music becomes even more accessible, those songs aren't being played back in their full richness and color,' added
'More than just a look into the effects of technology on sound quality, 'The Distortion of Sound' is a film about the power and strength of music and the emotions it evokes in those who live and breathe it every day,' said the film's director,
'This documentary is about how technology has changed the way we create and enjoy music - for better and for worse. While we all want our music to follow us everywhere, we have unnecessarily sacrificed fidelity for mobility. HARMAN wants to reverse this trend,' said
