Audio recordings of the Cdmc's encounters are available online. The contributions of all speakers are edited and processed to ensure good audio quality.
The Cdmc publishes various volumes as extensions of its seminars. Edited by the musicologists leading the seminars, they present the texts of the various interventions, and often include other contributions that enlarge the scope of the discussions.
A dozen exhibitions are available on hire from the Cdmc. Designed and constructed by the Cdmc in collaboration with the featured composer or specialised musicologists, they consist of large panels with graphic and iconographic documents: photos, writings, extracts from scores, posters, programmes of first performances, press cuttings, etc.
