Maintaining Sonic Texture with Time Scale Compression by a Factor of 100 or More

Time lapse photography is a common technique to present a slowly evolving visual scene with an artificially rapid temporal scale. Events in the scene that unfold over minutes, hours, or days in real time can be viewed in a shorter video clip. Audio time scaling by a major compression factor can be considered the aural equivalent of time lapse video, but obtaining meaningful time-compressed audio requires interesting practical and conceptual challenges in order to retain the original sonic texture. This paper reviews a variety of existing techniques for compressing 24 hours of audio into just a few minutes of representative "time lapse" audio, and explores several useful modifications and challenges.
