Abstract or Description

This chapter examines the foundational research concerning the applications of interactive mobile music conducted at Sony Computer Science Laboratory Paris and at Culture Lab Newcastle. It analyzes the forms and formats that music can take on when deployed on mobile devices and wireless infrastructures and looks at the development of conceptual thinking of mobile music creation outside the sphere of consumer markets and commercial applications. The chapter also discusses efforts to leverage the possibilities of contextual sensing coupled with dynamic media delivery systems to create new musical experiences that can be shared by groups of performers and listeners.
