The Atlanta Journal Constitution did a nice profile of the Atlanta Mobile Music project and its origins in my research on the Procrastination Economy.

Atlanta Mobile Music Project is Live

We are pleased to announce that the Atlanta Mobile Music Project is Live! This project is an effort to create a sense of community among MARTA commuters based on a shared love of music. You can learn more about the project by visiting the homepage. If you are interested in participating please tell us what you are listening to on your commute by sending the artist, song title, and your MARTA train line / bus route to our Facebook, Twitter, email, or text/call line (404-594-4036). Marta Music

Please check out the communal playlist and our trending music charts. Special thanks to our partners Georgia State University’s School of Film, Media, & Theatre, Liquid Blackness, and the MARTA Army and to our sponsors Georgia State University’s Center for Collaborative and International Arts and the Creative Media Industries Institute.

Atlanta’s Mobile Music

I am very happy to announce that my colleagues Angelo Restivo, Jennifer Barker, and Alessandra Raengo successfully earned a CENCIA grant for the School of Film, Media, and Theatre. The grant will allow us to put on a major media conference and community event. My contribution to the community event will be an initiative of the Atlanta Media Project called Atlanta’s Mobile Music. Based on research for my book The Procrastination Economy, Atlanta’s Mobile Music will survey MARTA riders on their mobile listening habits. The information from these surveys will be tabulated and a billboard chart of Atlanta commuters listening habits will be created. This billboard will offer commuters an opportunity to understand their fellow citizens and connect over their shared love of music. In February, the music of the commute will provide the soundtrack to a dance performance at MARTA’s Five Points station.

If you are interested in participating or helping with the project please contact me.
