Hi David and Ethan:


Here are the examples of the files we talked about for U2. Keep in mind
there are infinite potentials of implementation and combination. These
are only meant as talking point examples.




Here is a non-exhaustive list of ideas for the file formatting:

Apply Lowpass/Highpass Filters

Add Static

Changing Bitrate

Modulated Bitrate

Re-encoding to a low bitrate then back to a high one

Adding random noise

Lowering or raising the volume over the course of a song

Applying a periodic volume wave

Switching from Stereo to Mono

Switching audio from left channel to right channel

Changing between Left and right channels

Adding Channels

Adding Audience Noise

Adding a laugh track

Adding Reverb/Echoing

Adding Voiceovers / advertisements

Blanking out random words

Censoring/beeping random words


We don't want people to think the song sucked. We don't want people to
think the file was deliberately altered. We don't want people to find
patters in the decoys to listen for. We want people to think these are
natural aberrations in mp3 encoding. Feel free to forward this to
whoever needs to see it. We are still trying to keep this plan under
the radar as we feel that will make it more effective.
