Abstract

The overall aim of this book is to aid the DIY artist to move towards self-sufficiency through the use of new technologies, which is achieved by defining DIY music culture, identifying the creative and business needs of the DIY artist as well as establishing a model for DIY artists to be self-sufficient. The methodology consists of a mixture of unstructured interviews, including email, telephone and face-to-face. Fifteen DIY artists were interviewed from local music scenes around the UK, in particular Newcastle upon Tyne, Manchester and London. The book identifies areas of weakness within the processes of a DIY artist¿s creative project relating to the artistic and/or managerial process, which can be improved through the use of new technologies. This is demonstrated in the form of the DIY musicology model.
