It shows that an appropriate division derived from existing applications relies in four main types, which are defined as the physical, signal, symbolic and knowledge levels. This fair simple and straightforward division provides… (More)
This paper surveys a collection of sample applications for networked usercentric contextaware embodied music listening. The applications have been designed and developed in the framework of the EUICT Project SAME (www.sameproject.eu) and have been presented at Agora Festival (IRCAM, Paris, France) in June 2009. All of them address in different ways the… (More)
