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: Listening as method for collaborative and inclusive Creative Curricula

Member Profile: Ximena Alarcón

Ximena Alarcón is an artist who engages in listening to migratory spaces, connecting this to individual and collective memories. Her practice involves deep listening, sonic improvisation, and the creation of online environments to expand our sense of belonging and place. She is interested in creating telematic performances, derived from listening in interstitial spaces, such as dreams, underground transportation, and the ‘in-between’ space in the context of migration. She completed a PhD in Music, Technology and Innovation, from De Montfort University, and received a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009, which led to the creation of the online environment ‘Sounding Underground’. She was awarded with a Deep Listening Certificate in 2012, and is currently a mentor for the Deep Listening Training Program, led by the Center for Deep Listening, at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
