Kodwo Eshun Interview (1999)

“In this interview from 1999(!) Kodwo Eshun is talking about ‘ocean of sound’, the constant anxiety created by musical oversupply and people’s resulting need for a grand narrative to fixate on. And today? Ten Million songs practically unheard! Looks like grand narrative is pretty much still in effect. But then: 13 million songs. This ain’t no mere post-scarcity no more, this is a massive expanding ocean of noise. Waiting to be explored. Waiting for everyone to drown in?”
