    Abstract

    In social settings, music selection can play an important effect on the psyche of the environment’s inhabitants. Choosing the appropriate type of music for a social environment is a complex task involving the constant appraisal of the inhabitants musical preferences and their changing reactions to the musical selections played. We present a socially aware music selection system that allows people to influence the music played in the environment they are in, using their mobile devices to indicate preferences. We discuss the interaction opportunities between people and their environment as well as the use of the environment itself as an interaction enabler between users.
