Ethno-esthétique du surf en Floride : impact des relations esthétiques entre surf et musique sur le marquage identitaire.

Abstract : This thesis in American studies focuses on the implementation of the surf lifestyle through a surf music anchored in a geographic and sociocultural space overlooked by surf specialists even though it is prone to cultural creativity and to the development of singular and inclusive aesthetics at once. Cultural practices of surfers from Florida’s Space Coast are analyzed in this ethnographic study that conceptualizes ethno-aesthetics and draws from ethnomusicology and social psychology theories. This interdisciplinary work explores the ways in which musical experience pertaining to the surf lifestyle can be considered as a marker of the various American surf subcultures. From the physical space in which music comes to life to a mythology built around ideological scenes, the place in which music is developed and consumed plays a vital role on its evolution and its conservation. We move past the myth of a surf music marked by Californian exclusive aesthetics in order to suggest the glocalization of a redefined surf music used as a space allowing the marking of local identities. Theoretical models related to the cultural systems under scrutiny as well as concepts such as surf strands, the principle of relative inclusiveness, or the surfanization of urban spaces are developed according to the needs of the research.
