This book examines the way technology is changing the micro-social processes underlying the transformation of cultural knowledge acquired during music consumption into objectified and embedded cultural capital. New digital technologies have made new social exchanges between individuals possible, aimed ultimately at accessing music and other forms of cultural expression. Departing from the hypothesis that individuals are linked through music exchanges charged with shared meanings, this book adopts an interpretive framework to analyse the ways individuals access music, how they interpret shared meanings and how exchanges are used to socially classify individuals.
