I heard an excellent demonstration of this illusion on the Drum last Friday (I think). The first time they played the full sound I heard one “word”, but when they filtered it to emphasise the high and low filtered parts I could hear each one as clearly as these confected “word-like” sounds could be distinguished. This illusion is an excellent example of psychoacoustics at work, and it is an example of how compression can work with the brain replacing the missing sounds with a construct of its own.
