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: Staging Disorder

Staging Disorder was an exhibition of photography, sound and moving image exploring the contemporary representation of the real in relation to modern conflict at London College of Communication (LCC) in 2014, curated by Christopher Stewart and Esther Teichmann. The photographic works posed questions about the nature of truth as it manifests itself in current photographic practice - while the sound works extended these themes adding a multi-dimensional resonance with sound and moving image installations and written texts.
