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: Vermilion Sounds

Vermilion Sounds is an online exhibition curated by Peter Cusack for CRiSAP in 2007. The exhibition is still available online to visit. Vermilion Sounds was originally a radio programme produced by Peter Cusack and Isobel Clouter which premiered on ResonanceFM on the 7th of June, 2002. Vermilion Sounds’ remit was to bring listeners the best of field-recording, phonography and acoustic ecology and to engage with issues related to the sound environment. The approach was intended to be a varied one, with some individual programmes commissioned from renowned artists and other shows featuring exclusively musical works, or dedicated to studio discussions or interviews with specific artists, illustrated by their work.
