In this paper we propose to extend the concept of the Internet of Things to the musical domain leading to a subfield coined as the Internet of Musical Things (IoMUT). IoMUT refers to the network of computing devices embedded in physical objects (Musical Things) dedicated to the production and/or reception of musical content. Musical Things, such as smart musical instruments or smart devices, are connected by an infrastructure that enables multidirectional communication, both locally and remotely. The IoMUT digital ecosystem gathers interoperable devices and services that connect performers and audiences to support performer-performer and audience-performers interactions, not possible beforehand. The paper presents the main concepts of IoMUT and discusses the related implications and challenges.
