Humans attach meaning to life through ceremony. The highest form of ceremony
is the act of making music. Music is universal -- its beats, rhythms, melodies,
and tempos speak much more deeply than words.
There are many ways today to access music:
MP3s are digital audio files which are compressed to a size smaller than the
original wav format (the format on CD's). Depending on the rate of compression,
mp3's still maintain their original sound quality. The quality of the audio
compared to the file size is what has made mp3 music compression the most
popular format for transfering, storing and listening to music on the Internet.
File size is what has set the mp3 music file format apart from the rest.
