What: The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT pronounced “kermit”) is housed at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University, just a couple blocks north of the ICSV26 venue. CIRMMT is a multidisciplinary research group that seeks to develop innovative approaches to the scientific study of music media and technology, to promote the application of newer technologies in science and the creative arts, and to provide an advanced research training environment.


CIRMMT occupies a unique position on the international stage having developed intense research partnerships with other academic and research institutions, as well as diverse industry partners throughout the world. Several volunteers of the ICSV26 local scientific committee are regular members of CIRMMT and a special tour has been arranged to let ICSV26 delegates discover this unique center and visit its new Music Multimedia Room.


Note: For logistic reasons, this exclusive tour will be limited to 3 groups of 10 persons each, and will include 3 stops of 30–35 minutes each, including

What: The ICAR laboratories (Infrastructure commune en acoustique pour la recherche ÉTS-IRSST) are housed at ÉTS (École de technologie supérieure), just a couple blocks away from the ICSV26 venue. ICAR is a training and research laboratory for industrial acoustics. Its creation results from the successful collaboration between ÉTS university and IRSST occupational health research institute.
ICAR allows to test, improve and develop new products or processes that are more acoustically efficient: industrial machines, tools, transportation vehicles, household appliances, acoustic materials and hearing protection devices.
The ultimate goal of ICAR activities is to increase the comfort, health and safety of workers (and the general public) through the operation of state-of-the-art acoustic testing facilities that meet the needs of both industry and academic researchers.




Note: For logistic reasons, this exclusive tour will be limited to 2 groups of 15 persons each.
Visit 3: Exclusive tour— MOEB
When: Tuesday, July 9, 2019. 3:00 pm-5:00 pm

logo MOEB


The museum: Emile Berliner’s research led to the development and patenting of a microphone that Alexander Graham Bell acquired to improve his invention - the telephone. Berliner went on to work in Bell' laboratory for 6 years before returning to his own research. On November 12, 1887 he received the patent for his invention: the gramophone, as well as for the process of creating the master and duplicating his flat disks. Without yet knowing it, he had forever changed the world of music. The Mission of the Museum is to collect, preserve, curate, research, depict, and exhibit audio artifacts, interpreting their significance — scientific and technical, social and cultural, historic and economic — to Quebec, Canada and the world i.e. made available to the widest possible public.

The exhibit: With the Expo ’67, industrial design in Canada was in full swing. Many Canadians were among the designers, that blossomed during the summer of the “Man and his world”. Now, 50 years later, the MOEB celebrates a comeback of this era, rich in dashing creations.

From that moment on, stereo systems featured a futuristic vibe, and at the MOEB you can experience many of these beautiful pieces following this trend. There are renowned talents such as Gordon Duern and Keith McQuarrie, creators of the “Apollo” series for Electrohome in Kitchener, in Toronto works Hugh Spencer on the creation of the “Project G” for Clairtone, and here in Montreal, Andre Morin catapults with his “forma” design RCA Victor into the space age. These objects by Canadian designers are yet another contribution to the world heritage of the 20th century.
