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: Star-Shaped Biscuit

Star-shaped Biscuit is an opera (composition and libretto, approx. 90 minutes) by David Toop. The opera is for three singers, five multi-instrumentalists and digital sound composition, developed over four years, initially by a Jerwood Opera Writing Fellowship 2008-09. The opera takes its title from a surrealist object. It emerged from initial research on writer and dandy Raymond Roussel, whose star-shaped box containing a fragment of a biscuit was acquired by Dora Maar, the opera’s protagonist.
