Digitamorphosis of Music Consumption Practices. The Case of Young Music Lovers

Abstract : In this article I analyse recent trends that are changing the consumption patterns of music content. ICTs are contributing to a more general access to cultural works, as well as to the wider diffusion and circulation of cultural content. They are also triggering a reorganisation of the practices of music lovers and their relations with cultural works and the new objects through which they exist. Here I explore some of the arguments of a hypothesis that I call 'digitamorphosis'. Drawing my inspiration from studies on discomorphosis, my aim is to identify what today's music lover owes in particular to the digitisation of sound, the dematerialisation of music media, and the diversification of equipment.
