The Museum of Portable Sound

Recently I accepted an invitation to participate in a new project put together by my friend John Kannenberg. It's still taking shape, so nothing's definite yet, but feel free to consult the links below if you have any interest. The text below is mostly copied from John's own description. Enjoy!

The Museum of Portable Sound is a mobile museum dedicated to portable sound, initially based in London, UK. Its permanent collection is augmented with an ongoing series of rotating exhibits of no longer than 10 minutes' duration.

The Museum's galleries exist as playlists on the Museum Director's mobile phone. Visits to the Museum are by appointment only (or by bumping into the Museum Director on the street).

Visitors are asked to provide their own earbuds/headphones to access the collections.


The Museum of Portable Sound is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and exhibition of cultural artifacts related to the history of sound. With a specific focus on portability, digital initiatives, and community engagement, we bring the culture of sound to the public one listener at a time.
