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: Sound Traces

An online exhibition curated by David Toop for CRiSAP in 2009 exploring the legacy of London Musicians Collective Archive (LMC). Sound Traces is still available online to visit. The LMC was founded in the mid-1970s by a small group of experimental and improvising musicians who wanted to create improved working conditions for themselves. As the LMC established itself it attracted a broad cross-section of musicians, live arts practitioners, instrument inventors, sound poets and sonic artists, many of them searching for radical new directions in performance practice and a means of bypassing the commercial criteria.
