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: Berlin Sonic Places

The project Klang Orte Berlin/Berlin Sonic Places was initiated and curated by Peter Cusack during his residency for the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program July 2011 to July 2012 to explore the importance of sound in the urban context and how it is affected by city planning and development. Reconstruction and development projects of every size and purpose have been a fact of Berlin life since reunification.
