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: Flat Time / Sounding

Flat Time / Sounding is the culmination of a research project by David Toop centred on interaction with the work of the artist John Latham (1921-2006), begun in 1969. It took a new direction with ‘The Body Event’ (2009) which explored sound as an embodiment of memory, theory and presence. FLAT TIME/sounding resulted from a commission (2010) to compose a musical work for a sound performance (2 hours duration) at the Whitechapel Gallery, London.

I come from a background of music and theology. The gathering of people and the sounds they make greatly interest me, whether its singing, talking, praying, clapping or laughing.
