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: Sound Portal

University of the Arts London (UAL) collaborated with BE OPEN in 2013, hosting the Sound Portal at Chelsea College of Arts and conducting a six month interdisciplinary university wide art-collaboration on the topic of urban soundscapes. Each college explored a specific thematic within the overarching concept of urban soundscapes, by bringing together previously unrelated disciplines in order to explore the sonic terrain of spatial environments. CRiSAP represented London College of Communication (LCC) and explored the topic of ‘Sound, Place, Memory’.
