Three Strategies for the Design of Social Listening Experiences

Paper presented at the 2008 Spring Conference of the Institute of Acoustics, University of Reading, UK.

Abstract

As our musical listening habits have gradually converged towards everyday environments in the last century, the social circumstances of music listening have experienced significant transformations which are still insufficiently understood. A reason for this can be seen in the lack of reflection on how listening concepts have changed with the introduction of technologies like recording media or portable music players. A discussion of the modes of listening initiated by these technologies reveals a development towards increasingly individualized musical choice, at the cost of a less socially mediated listening experience. With regards to recent developments in the area of locative and context-aware media, three strategies for integrating personal choice and social interaction in the design of music listening environments are suggested.
