Montreux Jazz Café

The Montreux Jazz Café at EPFL is dedicated to presenting the famous festival’s archives, which are inscribed in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.

You can immerse in more than 5’000 concerts (14’000 tapes in total, 11’000 hours of video and 6’000 hours of audio), that have been digitized and archived as part of the Montreux Jazz Digital Project directed by the Metamedia Center of the EPFL in collaboration with several laboratories.

Besides leading the digitization and preservation of the recordings, EPFL has designed devices to browse, visualize, and listen to the archives that will be available to the public.
