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: Playing With Words

Playing with words: The Spoken word in artistic practice edited by Cathy Lane, is an anthology of works from over forty leading contemporary sound artists and composers who use words, particularly spoken words, as their material and inspiration. Each invited contributor responded with a work for this edition, revealing a rich variety of artistic approach and exploration of the spoken and written word communicated through sound poetry, interviews, creative writing, visual-textual pieces and performance scores.

Member Profile: Jono Gilmurray

Jono Gilmurray is a writer, researcher and electroacoustic composer, currently conducting AHRC-funded PhD research into ecology and environmentalism in contemporary music and sound art, based at CRiSAP (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice) at the University of the Arts London. Both his academic research and his compositional work stem from a strong belief in the potential of the sonic arts to facilitate a vital and fundamental reconnection between human beings and the natural ecosystems, of which we are all an integral part, and upon which we all depend – something which is of crucial importance in this era of global climate change.
