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: The Uses and Abuses of Field Recording

CRiSAP's fifth research symposium, the Uses and Abuses of Field Recordings was a celebration of the beginning of a two year EU Cultural Partnership Project. The event explored the role of field recording in artistic practice, inviting eight presenters who all use microphones in different ways and for different reasons, to capture something of the world around them: Viv Corringham, Peter Cusack, Felicity Ford, Michael Gallagher, Ruth Hawkins, Bill Thompson, Salomé Voegelin and Mark Peter Wright.
