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: Anspayaxw

Anspayaxw uses photography, voice and environmental recordings to create an immersive installation based on an endangered indigenous language in northern Canada. Photographs taken by Wynne and Denise Hawrysio were digitally manipulated by Wynne and printed onto bespoke speaker panels: each photograph becomes a flat loudspeaker, an independent sound source reproducing one of 12 audio channels played back via hard disc recorder.
