We present a system for collaborative musical creation on mobile wireless networks. The work extends on simple peer- to-peer file sharing systems towards ad-hoc mobility and streaming. It extends upon music listening from a passive act to a proactive, participative activity. The system consists of a network based interactive music engine and a portable rendering player. It serves as a platform for experiments on studying the sense of agency in collaborative creative process, and requirements for fostering musical satisfaction in remote collaboration.
