    A few times in the past, Dan has used the background of the image to hint at the method used for encoding the text.

    There seems to be a strange pattern to the spikes. Some of the spikes are much taller, and some are shorter. I wonder if that is related.

    Vinyl

    It looks almost like a closeup of a vinyl record.

    That's what I was thinking. Possibly with a different key for each line.
