(NOTE: The watermarked MOPS logo will not appear on any of the merchandise you purchase!)

This handy flowchart will help you and your friends solve the eternal question “Is it ‘Sound Art’?” by walking you through a rigorous step-by-step deductive process to pinpoint exactly where whatever it is you’re listening to belongs in the Sound Art canon. Use it during studio visits, classroom critiques, at private views, during concerts, or any time you think you might potentially have discovered a new example of ‘Sound Art’!

The ‘Is it “Sound Art”?’ Flowchart Really Works. But You Don’t Have To Take Our Word For It.

Endorsed by leading experts in the pages of The Bloomsbury Handbook of Sound Art, our flowchart can be found gracing t-shirts, posters, greeting cards, mugs, stickers, tote bags, pillows, pouches, and more – all available for purchase in the official Museum of Portable Sound Gift Shop at Redbubble.

Rarely has it been so easy to determine the empirical essence of something so elusive, transitory, and ephemeral as ‘Sound Art’ – but now, with the Museum of Portable Sound’s official “Is It ‘Sound Art’?” Flowchart, you too can define the undefinable in just a few simple steps!

So what are you waiting for? Order today – our operators are standing by!
