Tickets Now Available for the Museum of Portable Sound Conference

Our first ever conference, Sound Beyond Music, is taking place exclusively online over two consecutive Fridays in November, the 12th and the 19th!

The Conference Schedule is now available, and we’ve got two great days ready for you to experience. Over the two weeks of the conference, presentation videos will be posted for participants to watch in their own time, then we will gather on the two Fridays for live presentations from exciting guest speakers – followed by questions and discussion with the online presenters!

All presenters, guest speakers, and panel judges may attend the conference for FREE. Anyone else must purchase a ticket, available from Eventbrite for just £10.

MP3@25 is our first-ever FREE Online Exhibition!

MP3@25: The Anniversary Exhibition, 1995–2020

What is an MP3? What is the history of the MP3? What is the legacy of the MP3?

We’ll be investigating these questions and more in this provocative free online exhibition which explores how a file type can change the world.
