Museum of Portable Sound are creating A Portable Museum of Sounds & Lots of Online Content

The Museum of Portable Sound (or 'MOPS') is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of sounds as objects of culture. You can learn all about us at museumofportablesound.com.

With particular focus on portability, nostalgia, digital materiality, community engagement, education, critique, and curiosity, we bring the culture of sound to the world – one listener at a time.

This involves meeting one-on-one with our museum's visitors – each person who visits the Museum of Portable Sound gets a private meeting with our Director and Chief Curator (me, John Kannenberg). I arrange a time and place to meet, and bring the museum (a mobile phone, a map, and a Gallery Guide printed book) to them. Visits last as long as the visitor wants – I've had 8 hour visits! Right now there's 5 hours of sounds to listen to, and soon there will be over 8 hours. 

And, admission is FREE.

I'd love to keep admission free for all. That's where Patreon can hopefully help. 

We've also got ideas for lots of real-world projects we would love to do that require funding! We want to do things like:

• Release a 7" vinyl single of the sound inside the world's oldest record shop;

• Publish a book of written lists that are 'mixtapes of remembered sounds' – in a book the size of an audio cassette, packaged inside a plastic cassette tape case;

• Bring the sounds in our museum to new generations of school children by partnering with local schools in the UK

This museum began as a PhD project, and now I'm hoping to keep it going beyond my studies. In order to do that, I need to make an income from it. The museum has a Gift Shop but it doesn't see a lot of action, unfortunately. I do a lot of guest lecturing at institutions around London, including the V&A, the Science Museum, the UCL Institute of Archaeology, and Anderson Acoustics, and I also publish daily content online for the MOPS Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, all of which have continued to grow over the past 4 years that MOPS has been in existence. We've got lots of fans, and we totally appreciate them!

If this sounds appealing and worthwhile to you, we'd really appreciate your patronage, at any level! Thanks for checking us out!
