ITMA is delighted to be participating in Heritage Week again this year. Come visit us at our premises in Merrion Square and view the sound players & carriers on display in our Special Collections Room. This exhibition will be accompanied by a sound track spanning three centuries.

Recording the Tradition Exhibition: Sound Technology & Irish Traditional Music

A wide variety of technology has been used to record and playback Irish traditional music since the invention of sound recording by Thomas Edison in 1877. This exhibition presents a range of analogue & digital audio equipment including the ITMA Wax Cylinder Collection & Cylinder players which is currently being preserved thanks to a Heritage Council grant awarded to ITMA in May 2016.
