Title: 'I make the product' : Do-it-yourself ethics in the construction of musical careers in the Portuguese alternative rock scene
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: The approach of doityourself (DIY) musical careers lies in the premise that music is aunifying set of activities, understood as a cluster of several practices and lifestyles. Theanalysis of musical production is usually based on an entrepreneurial perspective aboutcreative workers and, specifically, about the musicians. In this context, it can be useful torevisit one of the core values of the punk subculture, the DIY ethos, based onempowerment, on taking possession of the means of production, as an alternative tomainstream production circuits. It's about mobilizing DIY skills (strength, achievement,freedom, collective action) as new standards to promote employability, managing theuncertainty and precariousness of this option in terms of building a professional career.Starting from the case of two projects from Lisbon Filho Único and HAUS we intendto explore the relevance of DIY logics and procedures in the construction andmaintenance of musical careers in the alternative rock, considering their impact on Lisbonalternative music scenes.
