Welcome to Music Archive of Monash University (MAMU)

  • The Music Archive of the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music is a collection of musical instruments, scores, field recordings, and diverse other musical materials acquired since the foundation of the University’s original Department of Music in 1965. 

    Originally intended to  document the activities of the Department, it soon expanded in the 1970s to become a repository of research materials especially collected in Australia, South and Southeast Asia by Music Department staff and graduate students, and giving it  a predominantly ethnomusicological character. By 1973, the notion of maintaining a bona fide Music Archive had surfaced and since 1975, a part-time Archivist has been employed to manage the growing size and variety of materials housed in this repository.

    At present the Archive is in the process of expanding its Internet presence through the development of a virtual archive.

    MAMU is located on the 4th floor of the Menzies Building, at the Monash Clayton Campus, rooms 404, 406, 408 and 410.
