Script Details

Narrator: In the 1980s, Karlheinz Brandenburg, a young graduate student in Germany, took on the challenge posed by his PhD supervisor.

Was it possible to transmit music over digital phone lines?

His answer, which would evolve into the MP3 file, would launch both a revolution and a war.

To be transmitted over digital phonelines, music needs to be digitized from its original analog form and turned into extremely small files. In the mid-80s this was nearly impossible.

And Brandenburg had yet another challenge. The toughest musical content to digitize and later play back accurately was that of the female human singing voice.
