"Mary had a little lamb," the Utah Teapot of recording.

Upon viewing a proto-MIDI:
Schwartz posed the question to himself: what’s the difference between natural sound recorded digitally, and synthetic data of that music? “That got me going on audio compression,” he says. “There had to be a way of representing music with fewer bits.”
