Internet Music

Performance Practice and Presentation [PPP]  ]

Music in which the internet is integral either to its composition, or dissemination, or both. Currently, the main distinctive characteristics of internet music are:

- Asynchronicity
- Interactivity
- Multi-user
- Co-operation
- Emergence

Whilst the last two may also be said to be characteristics of conventional music making, the medium of the internet requires a special notion of social intercourse and co-operation which is peculiar.
