About MAMU

MAMU is a physical and digital 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 collected by Music Department staff and graduate students, especially from Australia, South and South-East Asia, giving it a predominantly ethnomusicological character.
