The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) is Ireland's national archive and resource centre for new music, supporting and developing the work of composers throughout the Republic and Northern Ireland.
It is used on a national and international basis by performers, composers, promoters and members of the public interested in finding out more about music in Ireland. Its unique library and sound archive comprise the only comprehensive collection in existence of music by modern Irish composers. It engages in an wide-ranging programme of development work to promote new Irish music at home and abroad.
The Contemporary Music Centre is funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and receives project funding from bodies such as the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism and the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO).
