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.

This 2500-word peer-reviewed essay by Salomé Voegelin explores the idea of listening to possible worlds. It is a further development of a keynote paper given at the ‘Sound Art Theories’ conference at the Arts Institute of Chicago (November 2011) and from a presentation given at Milton Keynes Gallery about the construction of possible worlds in Clare Gasson’s sound work (February 2012).
