Observation de trois scènes locales de musique métal en France : pratiques amateurs, réseaux et territoire

Abstract : A multisited ethnography of three local metal scenes in France. Amateurs practices, networks and territory. How a musical passion can be connected to the territory or, in other words, what links a musical "scene" — in the sense of a local world of art — to its location ? The world of metal inform the manifestations of the musical passion of its fans through a continuum of practices, which are the supports of the sphere of consumption and production of local metal scenes. To reach a better understanding of this local anchoring of the world of metal, we have implemented an ethnographic study of the coordination mechanisms of musical expression and production in the context of local scenes, through the observation of three local metal scenes in France. This ethnographic study shows that the collective agency of music amateurs is always attached to a territory, as well as depending of the musical objects — local and translocation — that guide their practices and their trajectories. The observation of the forms of anchoring and of the mobilities, both of objects and humans, that contribute to the production of these scenes, reminds us that music amateurs always operate within the frame of a local territory. Their collective action is always caught in an entanglements of scales and networks actors, meaning that we cannot reduce the observation of a musical world to practice operated alone and behindclosed doors
