Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the impact of cloud computing on music mobility. It discusses the rise of mobile smart-phone usage around the world and describes the ways these devices are increasingly tethered to proprietary databases called “clouds.” It evaluates the reactionary and the progressive promise of disintermediation in relation to new formations of labor that is characterized by increased entrepreneurial reliance on flexible and globalized networks of production and distribution. It also considers proposals to address some of the problems posed by the new economies implied by cloud computing in an age of mobile devices.

Keywords: music mobility, cloud computing, mobile smart-phone, remote databases, labor, mobile devices
