Audio Culture Research Unit is a platform for research exchange, faculty seminars and series of events that explore the sonic aspects of culture. ACRU is a School of Performance and Screen Studies (PASS) initiative, based at Kingston University in London, home to many great researchers working across the fields of philosophy, critical theory, music, dance, sonic theory, film and theatre. Grown out of such a transdisciplinary setting, ACRU promotes synergies between faculty members and graduate students, as well as between Kingston and other institutions (academic or art/ culture sector) based both in the UK and abroad. It is a space for the investigation of the speculative, creative and experimental aspects of sound and for cross-pollination between rigorous theoretical concepts and innovative art practice.
