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: Ouija Board

The Ouija Board’ is a group musical instrument based on the real-time analysis of the movements of a group of people by video camera. It is musical instrument for live group improvised sound performance, based on ideas initially developed by the poet James Merrill (‘The Changing Light at Sandover’, 1982) which documents ‘voices’ experienced by means of an ouija board. The research by Thomas Gardner is located within a number of paradigms within sound art that span the divide between practice-led artistic research and engineering-led human computer interface.
