CRiSAP is a research centre of the University of the Arts London based at London College of Communication, dedicated to the exploration of the rich complexities of sound as an artistic practice.

The centre’s 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.

Trond is a sound and installation artist visiting CRiSAP as part of a collaboration initiated between CRiSAP and the Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts – BEK, in Bergen. Derived from the experience with the project Sound Matters Framework, Ximena and Trond are envisioning possibilities for the creation of interfaces for relational listening accessing to archives of field recordings and speech, and to work creatively with them using the Jamoma platform. Trond will offer a talk to CRiSAP members about his work at the CRiSAP Soirée on April 26th, at 5pm.

Ximena Alarcón: CRiSAP Research Fellow, Dr Ximena Alarcón is an artist who engages in listening to migratory spaces, connecting this to individual and collective memories. Her practice involves deep listening, sonic improvisation, and the creation of online environments to expand our sense of belonging and place. She is interested in creating telematic performances, derived from listening in interstitial spaces, such as dreams, underground transportation, and the ‘in-between’ space in the context of migration.

This event is for CRiSAP Members and PhD students only, it is not a public event.
