Tag Archives: lo-fi

Lo-fi, an abbreviation for “low fidelity,” describes a recording process that contains technical flaws such as distortion, hum, noise, or limited frequency response. It is used in contrast to the audiophile term “high fidelity” or “hi-fi,” which refers to stereo equipment that accurately reproduces music without distortion, unwanted frequencies, or resonance. Lo-fi may be intentional due to limitations in analog recording or processing techniques, or purposely avoided for aesthetic reasons. (Wikipedia)

The use of the keyword “lo-fi” on REDEFINE will encompass its role in music, film, and multimedia.
