Andrew Matranga: In print and online
At the cusp of the 21st century, the exchange of digital music on the Internet brings forth interesting discussions. Reviewing data gathered from in-depth interviews with concert tapers and tape-traders, this thesis explores both the historical roots of concert taping and trading, and the present condition of digital music trading on the Internet. This study asks questions about the technological and the legal advances regarding music trading, and speculates whether or not those advances might signal the death knell of the amateur taping community, a vibrant subculture that long existed outside, but not opposed to, the music industry. Tapers, who envision themselves as cultural archivists and taste arbiters for the live music community, comment on the nature of the music collector in the digital age, and in doing so, add to the discussion of technology in an ever-shifting world of media and cultural studies.
