Visitors can step inside the official GRAMMY Museum Archives where they’ll watch the more than 500 public programs that have taken place in the 200-seat Clive Davis Theater. The archives is a wing of the Museum sponsored by Iron Mountain and dedicated to the development, preservation and archiving of rare audio and video assets from the music industry. The archives include interviews and performances by the Beach Boys, Ringo Starr, Kenny Chesney, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Nicks, Yoko Ono, St. Vincent, John Mellencamp, John Mayer, Jack White, Harry Connick Jr., Dr. John and many more. Additionally, information on every GRAMMY Award winner and GRAMMY Hall Of Fame inducted recordings are housed in the Archives.
The GRAMMY Museum Archives allow the Museum to showcase rare assets from the Asset Discovery & Development division, which is devoted to building artifact databases for a wide-range of musical artists, archiving and developing their legacy for historical preservation. The division, launched in May of 2011, includes discovery services to distinguish and restore/repair damaged assets for cataloguing; preservation and archival services to ensure original artifacts are secure, accessible and sharable; and business development capabilities to protect and monetize the artist’s legacy and brand.
“Our customers trust us with some of their most valuable assets, asking us to both protect and preserve them for today and for the future. We’ve worked with some of the world’s largest media companies, providing technological expertise and services for transferring, migrating and preserving digital data online. Providing the GRAMMY Museum with this wing and the asset discovery and development services, allows us to support their core mission and help maintain the important musical and cultural legacy for future generations.”
– Jeff Anthony, Vice President of Iron Mountain’s Entertainment Services
