I want to temporarily soundproof the living room of the house my band is living in. We need to be able to undo the soundproofing since we aren't going to live here forever. We've already figured out how to do the windows and doorways. There has to be something we can do to the walls without ripping them apart!
Saw something interesting at a sleep disorder test center once -- they had put up 1x3 strips at the top, middle, and bottom of the walls with screws into the studs and then put soundproofing panels on the walls from there. Made the rooms smaller, but it also helped make them soundproofed. You'd have some patching to do after you moved out, but it could work for you.....
