MEET is a music system allowing people to bring and share their music via streaming over global networks. The system consists of a player where a smartphone application allows access to music from a host located elsewhere. The system is designed to let people nominate and vote for the music in the player, ensuring that the music never stops. Interacting with the player is done from the users' own smartphones, creating a new shared multi-device control structure. The player is further connected to a situated display, displaying nominations and the currently playing song, giving an innovative user experience.
The paper describes the concept and development of MEET and furthermore presents three field tests conducted in three different locations. Findings from the tests showed that the system supports identity expression and impressions as well as social interaction. There were additionally unveiled some interesting general aspects of multi-device interaction during the tests. The system presents a new approach to music listening at private social events.
