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: Cats and Dogs

Cats and Dogs is a live performance for violin and moving image created for online audiences during the Coronavirus lockdown in London. The artist occupies the viewer’s screen, manipulating video footage by Denise Hawrysio with the sound of his violin, performed in real time. The restricted visual field, claustrophobic atmosphere and almost monochromatic image are redolent of the situation we have all found ourselves in at this extraordinary time.
