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: Networked Migrations

Networked Migrations explores the ‘in-between’ sonic space that exists within the context of migration, through Deep Listening and improvisatory performances on the Internet, in order to expand the perceived spaces that inform the migratory experience. Participants in distant locations followed a process of listening meditations, Chi Kung, dreamwork, voice improvisation, field-recording and collaborative work, concluding in real-time telematic performances using high quality audio streaming.
