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: Here are some scores for you to do

An intensive weekend-long exploration of the feminist performance score through a number of modalities including reading, listening, watching, discussion, play and performance. An event departing from materials in the Her Noise Archive, lead by Cathy Lane, Holly Ingleton and Irene Revell, with funding from Creative Vouchers / AHRC this workshop was a collaboration between Electra and CRiSAP. The avant-garde score, deriving instruction for performance from the toss of a dice, the I Ching, a series of notes or a text, can be seen as a basis for 'free' composition based upon utopian and emancipatory ideals. While the sonic results of an open work could be appreciated as 'randomly generated', 'natural' or spontaneous, in fact the outcome may be tightly regulated by the specific political economy of the compositional structure.
