Moving Forward: A Feminist Analysis of Mobile Music Streaming

Abstract [en]

The importance of understanding gender, space and mobility as co-constructed in public space has been emphasized by feminist researchers (Massey 2005; Hanson 2010). And within feminist theory materiality, affect and emotions have been de-scribed as central for experienced subjectivity (Ahmed 2012). Music listening while moving through public space has previously been studied as a way of creat-ing a private auditory bubble for the individual (Bull 2000; Cahir & Werner 2013) and in this article feminist theory on emotion (Ahmed 2010) and space (Massey 2005) is employed in order to understand mobile music streaming. More specifi-cally it discusses what can happen when mobile media technology is used to listen to music in public space and it investigates the interconnectedness of bodies, mu-sic, technology and space. The article is based on autoethnographic material of mobile music streaming in public and concludes that a forward movement shaped by happiness is one desired result of mobile music streaming. The positive value of ‘forward’ is critically examined with feminist theory and the failed music lis-tening moments are discussed in terms of emotion and space.
