This project created an interactive model for analysing alternative-popular folk music with a research-based web community database.

As an MPhil student in Music, Rachel Sweeney explored use of the Web as site for conjunction of academic and popular fan discourse around new cultural/genre movements. Her action research case study focused on the genre then described as "nu-folk".

Products of the research included the Untraditional Folkmusics website (last access in July 2011), a prototype tangible authoring system for exploration and annotation of multimedia critical discourse, and a large-scale mixed media visualisation of perspectives in critical musicology.
