LAUNCH: Digital Music Collection

  • Museum of Performance + Design 893B Folsom Street San Francisco, CA, 94107 United States

The launch is the culmination of a year-long processing and digitization project entitled Preserving San Francisco's 20th c. Musical Landscape. This archival/engagement project aimed to preserve and make accessible for broad public access 234 linear feet of materials from five major 20th c. musical archives in our collection. The project stewards the musical legacy of key artists, critics and educators in San Francisco for generations to come as well as the musical identity of our city and its contributions to the field of music nationally and world-wide. The project also brings attention to MP+D’s music holdings and expand its public reach with the creation of this new online music exhibit.
