I have had this idea of creating a track with just counting, 1, 2, 3, 4
and 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and Beat Beat Beat since long ...

and only recently thought: How much more interesting would that be with
many people, in several languages!

So that's why I ask you for audio samples of yourself and everyone else
you might get to do it, saying:
A: One Two Three Four
B: One and Two and Three and Four
c: Beat
preferably in your native language. With a tempo of 110 beats per minute
(to be very clear, the "and" has to be between beats ;).

All files should be:
- WAV or wavpacked
- 32 bit float, 48 KHz
- Trimmed
- Normalized
- Dry
- Explicitly licensed as http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/
  or released to the Public Domain

Please name them as follows:
firstname_lastname_language_count.wav for "One Two Three Fou"
firstname_lastname_language_count_and.wav for "One and Two ..."
firstname_lastname_language_beat.wav for "Beat"

I _much_ prefer links to uploads over email attachments. Consider using
http://www.getdropbox.com/ if you have no other space. Please mail me
off-list for submissions and on-list for questions.

My intention is to offer the result and the material on archive.org.
I also want to submit a version to the

I can't promise to use all contributions. I will sort out ones that
sound suspiciously different from others claimed to be in the same
language ;)
However, all serious contributors will be given credit.

I will collect files until the 15th of January!

Happy holidays!
