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: Points of Listening

Points of Listening (PoL) is a monthly programme of listening workshops, activities and discussions based in and around London. Beginning in January 2014 it takes place every second Wednesday of the month. Events are held at London College of Communication (LCC) in addition to various locations, outdoors and indoors, throughout the city. PoL seeks to promote and investigate listening together: to perform a ‘musica practica’ of field recording, deep listening, remote listening, film listening, textual listening, listening to the audible, inaudible and more.
