Encoding data in dubstep drops
Dubstep songs are often criticized as sound extremely computer generated and often just too aggressive/“digital” for a lot of people to enjoy. It’s not uncommon for people to joke that they sound like someone had added a bassline and drums to modem noises
For some tracks this is truer than others. After all, it’s a genre with more aggressive interpretations and more relaxed ones.
But that had me thinking, how much effort would it be to actually embed machine readable data inside a dubstep track, while ensuring that the sound could be enjoyed by humans as well…
I want to call this something punny. Dubsteg? Dubsteganography? Dubstepanography?
