The museum: Emile Berliner’s research led to the development and patenting of a microphone that Alexander Graham Bell acquired to improve his invention - the telephone. Berliner went on to work in Bell' laboratory for 6 years before returning to his own research. On November 12, 1887 he received the patent for his invention: the gramophone, as well as for the process of creating the master and duplicating his flat disks. Without yet knowing it, he had forever changed the world of music. The Mission of the Museum is to collect, preserve, curate, research, depict, and exhibit audio artifacts, interpreting their significance — scientific and technical, social and cultural, historic and economic — to Quebec, Canada and the world i.e. made available to the widest possible public.

The exhibit: With the Expo ’67, industrial design in Canada was in full swing. Many Canadians were among the designers, that blossomed during the summer of the “Man and his world”. Now, 50 years later, the MOEB celebrates a comeback of this era, rich in dashing creations. From that moment on, stereo systems featured a futuristic vibe, and at the MOEB you can experience many of these beautiful pieces following this trend. There are renowned talents such as Gordon Duern and Keith McQuarrie, creators of the “Apollo” series for Electrohome in Kitchener, in Toronto works Hugh Spencer on the creation of the “Project G” for Clairtone, and here in Montreal, Andre Morin catapults with his “forma” design RCA Victor into the space age. These objects by Canadian designers are yet another contribution to the world heritage of the 20th century.
