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 Voice and its Double

The Voice and its Double is an online exhibition curated by Michael Hiltbrunner for CRiSAP in 2009 on experiments in the artistic use of the recorded voice. The exhibition is still available online to visit. Inspired by his own artistic practice, the Zurich-based artist and researcher Michael Hiltbrunner has compiled an anthology that stretches back from the present to the time of the earliest recordings, selecting work that shadows his own preoccupations with repetition and with the original and the 'copy' whether articulated through the dynamic process of recording or through notation, synthesization or instrumental adaptation.

Member Profile: Cathy Lane

Professor Cathy Lane is interested how sound relates to the past, our histories, our environment and our collective and individual memories. This informs her current work as a composer, sound artist, lecturer and researcher. Aspects of her creative practice have developed out of these interests and include composition and installation-based work with spoken word, field recordings and archive material. She also writes and lectures on these and related subjects as well as collaborating with choreographers, film makers, visual artists and other musicians.
