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: Sound Art as Public Art: performing the civic between listening and being audible

In this presentation Salomé Voegelin proposes that Sound Art, whether gallery based, or site specific, in nature or within the built environment, places us in a very particular way within what Chantal Mouffe considers the ‘democratic paradox’, and what Étienne Balibar calls within the notion of ‘égaliberté’, since it always engages the listener in the agonistic conflict between individual freedom to hear the invisible material in the formless shape of her auditory imagination; and the demand of equality, of a collective hearing, that aspires consensus and a shared vocabulary of what that formless form might be.

Member Profile: Guido Tattoni

Guido's research interests include generative compositional techniques, contemporary music, artificial intelligence, interaction design, sound and audio technology, space and movement and formal languages theory.
