Living Archive

smem (swiss museum for electronic music instruments) aims to establish as the worlds first platform for electronic music instruments.

The first base of this project was laid by the collection of Klemens Niklaus Trenkle who for the last decades  collected numerous and valuable synthesizers, organs, keyboards, effects- and studiogear. smem is located in the innovation center of the “BlueFactory” in Fribourg (Switzerland).

It is gradually developping its different activities on an international level while increasing its current collection.

smem is a tax exempted non profit association with around 30 active members and a board of five people, as well as around 200 supporting members.
