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: Sinister Resonance: The Mediumship of the Listener

‘Sinister Resonance’ is the published outcome of four years of inter-related music practice, conference presentations, peer-reviewed academic articles and book chapters, and scholarly research related to the act of listening by David Toop. Toop examines the possibility of ‘hearing’ otherwise silent media such as paintings and literary texts as if they are audio recordings. As a discursive text moving between scholarly analysis and listening journal, the book proposes a form of critical writing located between the act of making sound and the developing academic discourse of sound art.
