I’m not sure if 1,000 files sound incredibly impressive to most users or not, but it should or we need to develop new methods of counting. 1,000 audio files is a lot of work and audio files have depth. With so many people working to lay the foundation for access by digitizing materials, so many others have already been building from and on them. We need more open materials to build with, and for a sense of space, place, time, and movement, we need music we can share, use, incorporate, recombine, and these 1,000 represent the files themselves and thousands upon thousands of connections and constellations.
