[PD] raw audio format and open files randomly

 Hello list.....Intrigued by the idea of playing back jpeg (or other) files
as audio signals I've been having a go with the readsf~ and soundfiler
objects....skipping the header with readsf~ and using the -raw flag in
soundfiler, opening in an array and using tabplay~ to play it back....whilst
I can get these objects to open the files and play them back, the results
seem a bit disappointing...just a lot of white noise at a constant volume.
The wave forms displayed in the array look more promising than the audio
Was I expecting too much? What else could I be doing to achieve a more
interesting sound?
