Backmasking is a technique in audio production where a message is hidden behind the playback of a recording. The technique first appeared in the 1980s when thirty Huntersville, NC, teenagers burned records at church. They were led by a former rock musician who believed that Satan was brainwashing the youth with backward messages. Backmasking involves the reversing of audio and placing it into a recording device intended to be played forward. The result is that normal playback will sound like gibberish. However, when reversed, the message can be revealed.
Hundreds of different masking techniques exist. Backmasking is one of the easiest and least expensive. It was once expensive to purchase a modulator and analog effects. AM modulators, for example, can cost hundreds of dollars. These backmasking techniques can be effective in scaring people. In fact, many artists have used backmasking techniques to make music more frightening.
Backmasking can also be used to hide messages. A backmasked audio track will sound like gibberish when played in a normal way, but the original message will appear when played backward. This technique was used by The Beatles while recording Revolver. Backmasked messages have been found in all types of music, ranging from satanic to comical.
Backmasking became famous in the 1960s, with the Beatles. The Beatles’ song “Rain” featured a hidden message that was revealed only when played backward. John Lennon was a fan of backmasking, and a famous producer, Russell Gibb, used it to make The Beatles’ “White Album” record more evocative.
The history of backmasking is not entirely clear, but some people have accused popular rock and pop groups of using the technique to manipulate listeners. Despite the widespread outcry, most of the accused artists have ignored the accusations and have continued to release their music. In fact, some records have even been burned in protest.
Backmasking has become controversial, especially with the Christian community. Christian groups have alleged that satanic messages were being inserted into secular music. While most musicians deny using backmasking to promote Satanism, there are bands that do insert messages into their music on purpose. However, there is a debate about whether backmasking has any benefit in the long run.
Music recording technology has made it easier to mask messages. The first backmasking video was created as part of the Grammy Awards promotional campaign. Users were prompted to play the video backwards, which revealed hidden visual stories and the words’music unleashes you’. However, in the modern digital era, this practice has been largely discouraged.
