Abstract: In the last decade, consumption and fruition of music has suffered tremendous change, both due to economic, symbolic, informational and technologic factors. Being a central theme in Sociology in the last three decades (DeNora, 2007), musical fruition has been, it has been subject to both quantitative (Bourdieu, 1984, 2004,2007), and qualitative (DiMaggio, 1982; DeNora, 2000) methods in its investigations, with the classical studies of it having revealed the role of music as a symbol of social distinction and status. Recently, the deep relations between musical taste and status have shown to be more complex, forcing us to adopt the modulation introduced by the omnivore/univore model. It is also of obvious mention the work produced by the Birmingham Cultural Studies, alongside it’s modern interpretations and updates, especially in it’s contribution to the construction of social identities and all the processes through which meaning was attached to musical work and it’s social appropriation. (Hebdige, 1979; Feixa, 1999; Hall, 2003; Bennett & Peterson, 2004). Acknowledgement o fan active relationship between music, identity and locations has been of extreme use to Sociology, because of it’s Foundation in the concept of scene (Bennett & Peterson, 2004; Bennett, 2004ª) as a social construction restricted by networks and patterns of interaction, occurring in a given space-time locus. Thus, the main investigative line here presented is in the analysis and interpretation of the bonding, taste and fruition to and of punk and post-punk musical manifestations in the Portuguese contemporaneity of the last decade, attempting to apply the aforementioned theories. The main objective of this work is to develop two main investigation lines: the first, attempting to bring light to the impact of societal changes in consumption and fruition of music, making them more fluid, fragmented, eclectic, unattached to industry or classical production, with note to the growing unmediated relationship between artist and consumer; the second one relates with the pioneer possibility to systematize data pertaining to the pop rock universe and its’ underground manifestations, giving them visibility, legitimacy, consistency and willingness to deepen the theoretical contributions to other social scenarios than Southern Europe. This work has implied a multitude of techniques of sociological investigation, amongst which we can refer a survey, direct observation, documental research and analysis, sound and image capture, etc. Thus we’ll display profiles of multiple correspondence of punk and post punk musical fruition, founded on a well achieved inter-technical relation, able to produce simultaneously a systematization of information alongside an advance in the knowing of a very fragmented and nearly invisible reality.
