Short description of the English lecture:

Michael Bull: Sound Nostalgia: IPod Culture and the Rhythms of Longing
MP3 technology has created a new wave of musical archiving, collecting and categorisation by users. IPod users report listening to music twice as much as before in a variety of new settings. In this talk, Michael Bull focuses on the transformation of users music collection as a form of auditory nostalgia. How does the use of mobile technologies such as the IPod enable users to transport their auditory desires and compulsions with them wherever they go?

Professor Michael Bull teaches in the Media and Film Department at the University of Sussex, Brighton and has written widely on sound, music and technology. He is the author of Sounding Out the City. Personal Stereos and the Management of Everyday Life (Berg, 2000) and is co-editor of The Auditory Culture Reader (Berg, 2003). He is presently writing a monograph entitled Sound Moves: iPod Culture and Urban Experience for Routledge to be published in 2006. He is also Chief Editor of The Senses and Society Journal.
