New Chapter: What happens to materiality in digital virtual consumption?

The new book Digital Virtual Consumption, edited by Mike Molesworth and Janice Denegri-Knott for Routledge (Routledge Studies in Innovation, Organization and Technology Series) is recently available in the bookshops.

The book contains (pp. 111-128) my chapter titled “What happens in Digital virtual Consumption?” in which I discuss the finding of my research on the uses of digital music, pointing out the persistent  role of materiality in the shaping of the experiences and the practices of digital music listeners.
