This excellent volume will be useful to those in ethnomusicology and popular music studies who have been contemplating the new musical environments of digital media and broadband internet in recent years… There is a great deal here to both provoke and inspire ethnomusicologists working on, or with, new media.

This is a valuable book about important topics, written by fresh voices on the academic music scene. It is well worth the investment of money and time for the general reading public, and merits adoption as a primary resource for the growing ranks of university courses about music in the digital age… this collection of essays sets a high standard among similar edited volumes, by virtue of the diversity and timeliness of its topics in digital media, its strong basis in recent secondary literature, and the appropriateness of the specific examples for each of the medial practices.
- James Deaville, Music, Sound and the Moving Image
