The NIMIR Project was inspired by previous research that I had undertaken as an MA student in 2017. For 12 months the idea of beginning a new piece of research, continuing on from that MA dissertation on a much larger scale, was present in my mind. Now, with certainty and confidence in the research direction it’s finally taking off. Knowing that every cent will be coming from my own pocket has not deterred me in the slightest.
However, the generosity of kind observers is very much appreciated and will be of massive assistance in helping this research progress towards its goal – to examine the lived experiences of people in Ireland’s music industry, in order to shine a light on the deeply embedded relationships between identity, representation, and the commercialised spaces of a commodified music culture.
