Abstract [en]

In the light of the technical development of music media and the assumption that technically superior (faster) media takes the place of its predecessors, this paper aims to bring light to the values, in particular social bonding values, that users attach to media objects. Compact cassettes and digital playlists have both commonalities and differences. As such, the overlying question is how are music media’s exchange and social bonding values affected by the fact that use values seem to follow a trajectory of speed-focused technical development? Can any dissimilarity or similarity in these values explain why the cassette tape persists of in an age of digital abundance?
