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: Louder Whisper

An online exhibition curated by Meena Vari for CRiSAP in 2011. The exhibition brings together a collection of sound narratives that identifies with Michel de Certeau’s idea that orality is everywhere. Orality has an extraordinary capacity to extend its reach beyond words and languages, and this compilation is an exploration of this rich, varied and intangible territory. Certeau brilliantly says that there is life when places of speech exist in any form and it continues to do so in various forms and function. This collection is an attempt to highlight the fact that conversations somehow or the other will make its way into each and every aspect of life, situations and without being noticed contribute to a change/reform and/or revolution. Louder Whisper is still available to visit online.
