Mix tapes consist of songs and other audio recordings which are arranged and sequenced according to the desires of their creators, and which are then often presented to a recipient in the form of a gift. This thesis researches the ways in which mix tapes are used in communication. Drawing on interviews with six principal informants, I consider the mix tape both from the point of view of the creator, as well as the recipient.
