In this chapter, I consider the general question of ubiquitous listening, with a particular focus on how music is imagined in “homes of the future” at the beginning of the twenty-first century and ten years later. The connections and differences among wearable computing, pervasive computing, and smartphone apps lead me to argue that new issues of size and time are arising, as well as new focuses for the study of music.

Keywords:   ubiquitous music, listening, domestic space, home of the future, wearable computing, pervasive computing, smartphone apps, attention
