||In recent years, the cyberspace had led to significant evolution of information transmission. Indie musician upload their music to StreetVoice and Youtube to display themselves. They also keep good connections with other musicians and fans through Social Network. Consequently, network has been one of the most important environment for musician to create.|
Whether network is well creativity space for indie musician involves conflicts between its enhancing and inhibiting factors. We use Csikszentmihalyi’s three-pronged systems model and four major regulators:Law, Norms, Market, Architecture in the book of “Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace” by Lawrence Lessig as the study framework.
This research takes qualitative approach with twelve interviewees. All of them are indie musician. Following the data analysing, the results present the life of creativity can been divided into three stage: copy, shadow and create. When people go through the three stages, their knowledge of music will become more rich. Musician can write or sing a song to express what they want and who they are.
The results of this analysing, network could bring several enhancing factors Including promotion, grouping, sharing, encouragement and expanding fans. According to the analysis observed that network architecture isn’t robust now. Indie musicians are afraid that law can’t protect their copyright of music on network. In the part of norms, indie musicians want all of their musics on network are perfect. Furthermore, indie musicians don't believe that network could made enough profit to cover their basic expenses.
