Summary on Grant Application Form
In recent years we have seen the wide acceptance of informal personal technologies novel forms of conversation such as text messaging on mobile phones. Similarly, there has been an increase in the use of personal music making systems and digital audio devices. However, no technology has yet exploited the role of music in social interaction - one of music's fundamental roles for millennia. This project builds on our previous research to bring together music, messaging, and creativity in order to provide a new form of social interaction - ad-hoc mobile group music.The project will develop and evaluate a prototype to allow people to remotely create ringtones together through their mobile phones. Market research indicates that music and ringtones are of expanding value and this application could become the next form of texting. Commercial exploitation of the technology is through licensing of the concept and application, as well as development of a billing platform for the group interaction
