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: Sounding Underground

Sounding Underground, funded by a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009, and supported by the Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University, is an internet-based sonic environment that links passengers’ listening experiences of commuting through the metros of London, Mexico and Paris. Its graphic interface and sonic navigational structure were derived from the exploration of both the commonalities and the uniqueness of soundscapes in Mexico and Paris, as counterparts of London Underground. The work was developed using an iterative method with 16 passengers in each city: remembering sounds, recording journeys, and selecting meaningful sounds from these recordings.
