Abstract

This project will investigate the barriers to independent musicians' creation of a sustainable music business. It will do via a survey of independent musicians' activities and successes, which will be used to inform an attempt to build an original music business. The project will harness digital production and distribution techniques and concentrate mainly on network theory and practice to support its promotion techniques. It is expected to contribute to our understanding of organised networks and the interaction between online and offline communication.
