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: Night Train

Nachtschichten’ is a publication resulting from and evaluating a project into long durations on the radio, funded by the practice-based arm of the Fonds Nationale Suisse, DORE (DO REsearch), together with University of the Arts, Zürich. Voegelin’s chapter evaluates five works produced as part of the project, by reflecting on her own listening through the night. It brings a phenomenological perspective to radiophonic discourse, working from a ‘close-listening’ over long durations, to an interrogation of time experience in night-time radio.
