Paper long abstract:

In this paper, I discusses that exchange networks of Japanese indie musician. In indie music, musician must such as work on their own. It is necessary that they have to go to the activity sustainably, individual musicians to extending the network to each other musicians and clubs. In that network, appearance, ticket, goods are exchanged. Those exchange makes a new relationships and a maintenance of the relationships.
