It's a problem for current models to accomplish compression without
losing some part of the audio quality. Do you think there could be a
better (or best) basis for reducing the complexity and bitrate of
sound? or is it just plain impossible?

I agree--but I'll put a little more on the table here. A strong model
is able to describe not only the big trends but the contextual,
situational, and personal sources of variation. A model of that kind
of scope is very far off, in my mind. I would be happy to have a
weaker model that generalizes well first.
