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: In the Field (Symposium)

An international symposium for field recording that explored the practice, art and craft of field recording through a series of panel presentations, listenings and screenings at the British Library in 2013. The symposium aimed to relate the multitude of contemporary field recording practices to their historical precedents, while investigating issues in contemporary practices such as how field recordings are distributed to and heard by an audience, recording the unheard, mapping the urban field as well as questioning the extended nature of the field in a digital networked landscape.

Member Profile: Jono Gilmurray

Jono Gilmurray is a writer, researcher and electroacoustic composer, currently conducting AHRC-funded PhD research into ecology and environmentalism in contemporary music and sound art, based at CRiSAP (Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice) at the University of the Arts London. Both his academic research and his compositional work stem from a strong belief in the potential of the sonic arts to facilitate a vital and fundamental reconnection between human beings and the natural ecosystems, of which we are all an integral part, and upon which we all depend – something which is of crucial importance in this era of global climate change.
