Le fil de la devise : les trois dimensions de l'authenticité dans les musiques populaires underground

Abstract : The economic and legal characteristics of the artistic authenticity value will be first reviewed. We will then underline that this social norm is also resulting from minorities’ expressive needs. Furthermore, underground popular music creators are specifically defined by the research of a device (in other terms “a feasible identification project” or FIP) and a more distant positioning in view of the stylistic and musical mainstream. This innovation ability and the desire to develop an original way are planned with a strange and irrational capacity to communicate with other devices producers. Creators’ intercommunication, device/FIP activation, peers networks creation and imitation refusal are leading to consider, in a sociological way, the authenticity value of this kind of activities.
