Global Music Vault have announced a partnership with Microsoft to use glass technology to help with the long-term archival storage of music. “As we want to offer the global music ecosystem an eternal solution, we believe that Microsoft’s Silica is that exact solution for our storage needs,” said Luke Jenkinson, Managing Director of Global Music Vault.
So, what exactly is the Global Music Vault? As we reported last year, it is an idea born from Norwegian company Elire Management Group who came up with the idea of storing the world’s best music – thus making it perhaps the largest musical database, or certainly one of them at least – in a vault for 1,000 years. The digital masters of music span from early recordings from indigenous people up to the modern music of today, also acting as a musical history. In far north Norway on the Svalbard archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole is where the vault can be found, and makes use of technology that will keep these digital masters of the tracks safe and able to play, no matter how far technology may have adapted in 1,000 years from now when this time capsule will open.
