Personality Correlates for Digital Concert Program Notes

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 9146)

Abstract

In classical music concerts, the concert program notes are distributed to the audience in order to provide background information on the composer, piece and performer. So far, these have been printed documents composed mostly of text. With some delay, mobile devices are making their way also in the world of classical concerts, hence offering additional options for digital program notes comprising not only text but also images, video and audio. Furthermore, these digital program notes can be personalized. In this paper, we present the results of a user study that relates personal characteristics (personality and background musical knowledge) to preferences for digital program notes.
