Abstract

In the realm of electronic music institutes, CSC’s activity goes back to digital prehistory and marks the birth of computer music production in Italy. This article briefly summarizes an historical overview of the centre showing technological advances and diverse musical works. Section 2 presents the status of preservation following a scheme which goes from general projects (cataloguing, re-recording), passing through the description of some material realised at the centre (musical pieces, software for performance) and finally describes specific research or projects in audio, software and instrument preservation and/or restoration. Section 3 is a consideration of the role of the CSC in the history of electronic music centres.
