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: Decoys

Decoys is an ongoing collaboration between Wright and Prof. Angus Carlyle. Their work operates at the intersections of studio and field, natural and artificial, real and imagined.
