EMS music archive searchable online

As a result of the EMS/National library digitisation project, all music created at EMS starting at 1964 is now searchable in the DISMARC portal. DISMARC is short for Discovering music archives, and one can read more about the project here. Thanks to Lena Forsgren at Svenskt visarkiv (Centre for Swedish Folk Music and Jazz Research) and Gerda Koch at DISMARC, who made this possible!

To search for EMS material exclusively, go to Advanced search, select "Archive" as field and enter "ems". There are about 3800 items in all, but one can add additional search terms with "+" to narrow the search:

Please note that due to copyright restrictions, we unfortunately cannot provide audio files online. For now, you have to come to EMS to listen.
