At present, much work on urban computing focuses its efforts on solving the perceived problems of disconnection, disruption, and dislocation. A growing movement, however, points toward the value of considering a less instrumental account of city life. Through reflections on an ethnographic study of an urban motility site and the design of Undersound, a situated music exchange application, the authors explore how an aesthetic account of urban life might be leveraged to support not only an individual, but also a collective, experience of the city. This article is part of a special issue on Urban Computing.
