About the Book
What if museums collected and displayed sound? The Museum of Portable Sound does just that, exhibiting sounds as objects of culture. This lavishly illustrated book is the ultimate companion to a visit to the Museum of Portable Sound, in which you'll find labels for every one of the 100+ objects on display, didactic texts, a survey of the MOPS Physical Objects Collection, and two bonus essays by Director and Chief Curator John Kannenberg: "A Brief History of Field Recording" and "Echoes of an Exhibition". With contributions from MOPS Curatorial Assistant Cristina Sousa Martínez and contributing field recordists Khaled Kaddal and Mike Hallenbeck. 144 full-colour pages.
