If one took all the tunes in the world and played them at the same time?

My thought exactly. The average of everything...

the random phase characteristics of all the songs in the world would exactly null - total silence

if you added one more song to that, that song would break the null and the 'difference file' would consist entirely of that song.

Here's an interesting question, how many songs can you play at once and still be able to identify the songs being played?

Here is a very realistic example of what that might sound like:
An art project by a friend of mine Jeff Thompson:



In his words:

"A program was commissioned (written by Chris Thompson) which takes my entire record collection (approximately 1,104 hours or 44 days of music) and compiles them into a single song.Every song I have plays at the same time.The result is densely layered at the beginning, packed to the point that nothing is recognizable. But as songs end and drop out (the average song length is about 03'50"), the sound thins until the only the longest song is left.The album cover was made from every album cover printed on top of one another, building a thick texture of subtle black and spots of white. This project takes a collection and reconfigures the presentation to make the collection a work in of itself and in the process the collection become void.The discreet boundaries of the individual pieces (track and album) are lost, though the set generated by this reconfiguration allows new and distinct information to be gleaned. A record collection is always in flux (though generally additive). However, by presenting the collection in this way the process is reversed, brought down to a single track."

...

It is interesting to hear how more detail emerges towrads the end, as durations vary, and eventually you hear fewer and fewer pieces layered.

Ummm, Pardon me but I beg to disagree. The only way that could happen is if you had the best converters and your room was treated. Otherwise....

well the nulling is taking place inside the computer before the converters, but as it happens I do have The Best Converters. I forgot what brand they are, but I am pretty sure it is stamped on the bottom. Next time I take them out of the rack I will look.

Chinese is easy for me, I was raised by Shaolin monks. After I used the kung-fu I learned there to avenge my family's murder, I went into Audio.
