Abstract

While the term Internet of Things (IoT) has become commonplace in both the vernacular of technologists and consumers alike the Internet of Musical Things (IoMusT) is an emerging field that promises to expand the landscape of music technologies. The internet of things provides additional possibilities for live music performances in particular. These possibilities can potentially increase markets for live music or substitute for traditional live performances during times when audience members may be unwilling to attend traditional concerts (for example, in a pandemic). Additionally, the technology could provide more interactive experiences for concert goers, affordable attendance options to a broader audience, and provide additional income streams for performers. We provide a model of critical considerations for integrating the internet of things with live concerts. The model framework has four parts: audience/musician interactions; technology; business models; and privacy and legal considerations.
