Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) is a research centre of the University of the Arts London dedicated to the exploration of the rich complexities of sound as an artistic practice.


Our main aim is to extend the development of the emerging disciplinary field of sound arts and to encourage the broadening and deepening of the discursive context in which sound arts is practised.

Research Feature: How to DO(O) Things with Sounds: A Performative (Re)User Manual

Contemporary theorising within the field of sound art practice emphasises the pursuit and function of listening as a central tenet in forming understanding and content. This research goes some way to re-balance this bias by shifting the weight of significance from listening to sounding and its practices. In its vernacular understanding, listening is commonly attributed to the human subject, whereas the potential to sound is shared by both the animate and the inanimate. It is with this in mind that I posit a doing of sound, whether anthropomorphically generated or not, as being crucial in thinking in, through and with sound.
