The principal idea of this project is to present, via short audio-visual documents, Slovak institutions that manage music documents, and as such are an indispensable though relatively less visible component of contemporary music culture. The aim was to provide a picture of their specificities and professional potential, and to encourage collaboration and information sharing.

In 2022 10 short videos were produced in cooperation with Slovak Branche of IAML representing diverse types of memory institutions holding music documents:


Supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council

Given the budgetary limits on feasibility in SNS IAML and the individual institutions, the technical quality of the documents is variable, ranging from amateur to professional. In finalising them, however, our priority was to communicate the content of the spoken word and to present those who devote their work to music and music documents. Taking this into consideration, we are sure that the viewer will be generous in judging them.
