1. Paradox: Made from soundscapes of a lawn mower, a dog barking, sounds of lakes, piers and rivers in various locations. All of them modified through computer + virtual instruments with no MIDI conection.
2. Aerangis Confusa: Made from soundscapes of lakes and piers, modified through computer.
3. Revolution as a Loop: Made from soundscapes of lakes and storms. Modified through computer + virtual instruments with no MIDI conection.
4. The Cat: Made from soundscapes of crickets, lakes, storms and piers. Modified through computer + virtual instruments with no MIDI conection.
The final piece has a duration of about 47 minutes. It is recommended to listen to it as a journey: with earphones if possible, and in a comfortable location.spit.radio-arte.com

SPIT has an unusual relationship with the natural world. While artists such as Chris Watson glorify environmental soundscapes by leaving them largely untouched, intervening only to apply the most subtle brushstrokes of emphasis, Sol Rezza transforms these soundscapes into drastically different figures. Yet her motive and message isn’t actually that far removed from Watson. This is still an act of glorification, and while the timbre of these natural sounds may have been rearranged until unrecognisable, the essence remains – SPIT is like the product of a renewable energy process, utilising nature in grand mechanisms of Rezza’s own making and channelling the splendour of the earth throughout.
