Social aspects of music and interactive technologies in facilitating face-to-face interactions in third places

Abstract

Emerging communication technologies are fundamentally changing our social lives. The relationships between our new digital and traditional physical social activities are changing dynamically, continuously evolving, rapidly integrating with one another. This paper describes research motivation and work-in-progress towards an investigation of social aspects of music and interactive technologies within the context of 'third' places such as bars, cafes, clubs, etc. The goal of this research work is to create methods, tools and guidelines to inform the design of novel systems that help lower social barriers and facilitate natural (face to face) interactions between strangers in co-located scenarios.
