SARU is a research group that provides a forum for dialogue and exploration between the fields of experimental composition and sound art. It is situated in the School of Arts at Oxford Brookes University between the fields of Music and Fine Art. Areas of interest include electroacoustic and language based composition, interdisciplinary practices, field recording and auditory knowledge.
SARU is bolstered by a community of practitioners and is home to audiograft, a festival of contemporary experimental music and sound art.
