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: Uncurating

Uncurating is not an impetus against curating, nor is it a deliberate non curating, the pretense of an anything goes, but an effort of decurating and recurating via a sonic sensibility: curating not works, spaces and objects, but making accessible an experience of the invisible, the audible and the as yet inaudible; not to conjure up judgment but to invite an inhabiting of the work as world - to hear in its invisibility the aesthetic and political plurality of its possibility.
