Greetings NEAR community! I am Shivang Arora, an award winning singer-songwriter, music producer, and an audio-engineer with 3+ years of experience in the audio industry. I’ve worked as a producer and mix engineer on multiple short films and singles. Fascinated by the Web3 ecosystem, I’m building the first Web3 community to empower Indian independent musicians and serve as their gateway into this space.
Indie Music in India
The Indie music industry is constantly growing at 30%+ over the past few years and currently has a market cap of over $1.2 billion USD. At every level, there are top-notch composers, performers and producers. It is essential that they can continue to create music for the masses.
There is one issue that all these artists have in common - finances.
The Web3 space is an amazing and untapped opportunity for Indian independent artists.
It has countless possibilities, along with a decentralised system that gives artists much more control than conventional systems, providing them with a better incentive as well.
The aim is to connect the deserving upcoming Indian indie artists to the available Web3 opportunities and introduce them to the ecosystem, along with providing them suitable funding so they can create music and music NFTs.
1: Onboarding of indie artists onto web3
2: Educating musicians about music NFTs and the ecosystem
3: Funding indie musicians in the IIMG community
4: Creating collaborative opportunities for artists
5: Enabling all IIMG artists to create Music NFTs on $NEAR
• Building the IIMG Community
• Creating and managing IIMG social media
• Funding indie artists singles/album (singles, albums, music videos, distribution, etc.)
• Minting IIMG Artists’ music NFTs on $NEAR
• Hosting AMA sessions with Music NFT projects in the ecosystem
• Hosting virtual community events (Live sessions, open mics, single/album launches, listening sessions, AMA’s, interviews and giveaways)
• Establishing IIMG DAO
• Partnering with NEAR metaverses
• Funding more IIMG artists per month + collaborative music releases

• Onboarding indie artists from around the globe
• Partnerships with Music NFT projects on $NEAR

Our main objective is to raise funds for indie musicians so they can create music and hence music NFTs
