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: Listening To Noise And Silence

Listening to Noise and Silence, a publication Salomé Voegelin, positions itself within emerging practices of sound art and its aesthetic and philosophical discourses. The book contributes to knowledge through its engagement with listening as a generative practice, theorising listening as productive in conceptualisations of subjectivity, space, perception and ethics.
