Abstract [en]

During the past decades media technologies for producing and consuming popular music have gone through major changes. The digitalization of older media and so-called new media has transformed the landscape for music use. Technological developments in radio, television, the internet, computers, mobile phones and mp3 players shape the ways in which popular music is consumed today. This article examines two intersecting aspects of how todays media landscapes are interwoven into and shape teenage girls uses of popular music. First, it argues that media technologies shape the girls uses of music in the context of their everyday lives and the spaces they inhabit. Second, media technologies take part in the girls practices of gender. For example, through their relations with their brothers and new media technology in the home, the girls are negotiating how to be girls, daughters and sisters.
