For the first time in history over 50% of consumers in industrialised cultures worldwide have the capability of listening to music whilst on the move - either through the use of their mobile
phones or on dedicated MP3 players such as the Apple iPod. In this stream we wish to discuss the social, aesthetic and commercial impact of the rise of mobile music consumption:
We wish to encourage contributions that discuss:
- The changing nature of the 'social' that might be implied by the personalised environment created through the use of mobile technologies.
- The potential for artistic and aesthetic production and consumption through the use of these technologies.
- The changing nature of consumption patterns - collaborative and individualised.
- What lessons might be learnt by the industries involved in terms of their response to new technologies, new markets and new patterns of consumption.
Submissions in the form of research papers (max 10 pages) and practice talks (max 1 page) are solicited via the conferences online submission system at the
