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: Hearing Voices

Hearing Voices is a body of work by John Wynne based on highly endangered 'click languages' spoken by the indigenous Khoi and San peoples in the Kalahari Desert. The project includes an 8-channel photographic sound installation and an award-winning half-hour composed documentary for BBC Radio 3 described as "a capricious sound world where aural objects shift and surprise" (Resonance Magazine). Originally designed to accompany the exhibition, 'Hearing Voices: Speakers/Languages' is an interactive app containing sound recordings, photographs, interviews, maps and information.
