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: Not for Human Consumption

An online exhibition curated by Julian Weaver for CRISAP in 2012. This exhibition showcases a collection of sonic phenomena, tests, by-products and compositions, from the inaudible to the barely registered, the overheard to the impossibly loud, that challenge our, self-given, position at the centre of sonic events. Not for Human Consumption draws together scientific projects and artistic works – including mosquitoes, brain stems, train motors, black holes, hard drives, voibots and electron microphones - that point to sound worlds where objects other than ourselves may be the recipients. Not For Human Consumption is still available to visit online.
