DIGITAMORPHOSIS OF MUSIC CONSUMPTION PRACTICES The case of young music lovers
In this article the authors analyse recent trends that are changing the consumption patterns of music content. ICTs are contributing towards the generalization of access to cultural works, as well as to the wider diffusion and circulation of cultural content. They also trigger a reorganization of music lovers' practices and of their relations with cultural works and with the new objects through which they exist. Here the authors explore some of the arguments of a hypothesis that they call digitamorphosis. Drawing their inspiration from studies on discomorphosis, their aim is to identify what today's music lover owes in particular to the digitization of sound, the dematerialization of music media, and the diversification of equipment.
