Music file compressed 1,000 times smaller than mp3
“This is essentially a human-scale system of reproducing music,” says Mark Bocko, professor of electrical and computer engineering and co-creator of the technology. “Humans can manipulate their tongue, breath, and fingers only so fast, so in theory we shouldn’t really have to measure the music many thousands of times a second like we do on a CD. As a result, I think we may have found the absolute least amount of data needed to reproduce a piece of music.”

This seems to be more of a MIDI type of process than an MP3 compression technique. It’s quite an interesting process but methinks that the writer/editor went for the sensational rather than factual reporting.
