The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley and Dmitri Petrov, which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press. Involving some of the most important artists of the twentieth century, and exemplifying the community ethos of the ’60s, SMS bypassed traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience. Six portfolios containing eleven to thirteen objects were produced in editions of 2000.

This SMS edition is a seven-minute recording by Duchamp of "contrepetrie," a word play involving transposing words, letters, and syllables and their sounds to make puns and effect new meanings.
