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: Andromache

This research investigates using very high and very low frequency sound, standing waves and ‘beat frequencies’ (resulting from the opposition of tones with slightly different frequencies) to explore site-and situation-specific sound practice. It began with a commission to collaborate with Graham McLaren on a contemporary adaptation of Racine’s ‘Andromache’, Toronto (2011).
