Ubiquitous Music: How Are Sharing, Copyright, and Really Cool Technology Changing the Roles of the Artist and the Audience?

Monday, 8:30 - 10:15 am
Room 515B

Since the 1970s, when the Walkman liberated music, we've moved on to iPods and mobile phones, which define contemporary social music experiences. How will we listen to music tomorrow? Because music is often a technological harbinger (digital representation, workstation editing, and optical storage came to sound before its media counterparts), this panel looks beyond current debates on copyright and presents new forms of music creation, listening, and sharing. It sheds light on ubiquitous content and social-interaction models afforded by mobile technologies.

Panelists from all segments of this nascent industry discuss current and future systems; the technical, artistic, and legal ramifications of sharing; new paradigms; and the roles of artists and listeners in the creative process.
