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::Gender::Feminism::Activism 2014

Sound::Gender:: Feminism::Activism 2014 (SGFA14) queried the place and performance of activism within discourses and practices of sound arts, sound-based arts and experimental musics that are engaged with gender, feminist and queer politics. This two-day symposium incorporated presentations, performances and screenings from academics, musicians, artists and performers selected through a peer-review process, each taking a different approach to the question: What, in the historical present, might constitute an activist life in sound? Our invited keynotes were Tara Rodgers (USA) - author of Pink Noises - and Maggie Nicols (UK) – musician, improviser, vocalist, activist.

Ongoing questions include how does environmental sound convey complex geopolitical meaning? How can technology and media be practiced with an eco-critical sensitivity and how might listening operate beyond the human?
