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: Nocturnal

John developed this site-specific installation in collaboration with filmmaker Atom Egoyan, in a large converted kiln and an adjacent hall at Snape Maltings. Commissioned by Jonathan Reekie for Faster Than Sound, Nocturnal was based on a piece composed by Benjamin Britten for guitarist Julian Bream. John deconstructed Britten's original composition, diffusing it in time and space across a strategically placed set of 11 speakers and 4 subwoofers.
