The Museum of Portable Sound announces its Grand Re-Opening event, celebrating the recent expansion of its permanent collection galleries and a new temporary exhibition curated by Cristina Sousa Martínez.
The Museum will hold an exclusive listening event at the Chalton Gallery in London, beginning the evening at 6.00pm when our Director John Kannenberg will play excerpts from our newly-expanded permanent collection galleries, which now contain over 100 objects that explore the culture of sound.
Then at 6.30pm, we will listen to an entire exhibition by emerging Mexican sound artist Daniel Toca:
‘Transitivity of Implication’ is Daniel Toca’s first real approach to sound. It’s about the causal chain that he’s created by transubstantiating his own words into spoken word and sound pieces (with the collaboration of Mexican improviser and musician Carlos Edelmiro), like in a hypothetical syllogism that leads us to conclude that from P we can infer ‘infinite.’
Daniel has also written a text score exclusively for this event, which will be performed live by renowned sound artist and vocalist Viv Corringham.
Copies of the Museum’s brand new guide map will be available for free, and our all-new Gallery Guide will be on display.
