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: Haunted Weather

From 2001 research was carried out into the impact of digital tools such as the laptop computer on various forms of music and sound art, questioning whether a computer could replace conventional instruments, and how effective it could be as an improvising device. The book Haunted Weather by David Toop (with accompanying 2-CD compilation released by Staubgold 52, 2004) is an outcome of these investigations, but it also has become a survey of experimental music and contemporary sonic art practice. Wider questions concerning the significance of sound, noise and silence in space, perception and memory are also considered, as a continual yet often ignored presence in human society.
