Listen: SHORTS FOR RADIO
(We recommend listening to this program during the night)
“Old disembodied voices from another world without time, no space, no language.”
Dedicated to archive.org everything we do once done leaves belong only time knows no copy rights.
“Short for radio” is an experimental radio series which has a duration of 12 minutes is the result of research based on sound files of the 20′ to 60′ from around the world are on the archive.org in the public domain.
“Shorts for radio” is born in late 2011 with the idea of creating a small fragment virtual radio, a piece of experimental radio and sound bites to collect texts that at some point been transmitted from a media such as radio or television. Through these sound bites seek to recreate a new discourse, a play on words, a transformation of language, a gino between composition and radio-style sound, a sigh radio between a virtual world where radio turmoil mutates and languages and meanings come to different senses.
Radio is a medium that takes the form of what it represents, a voice, a sound behind a black curtain, a solitude in the middle of the night, a gaze without eyes. Something that is beyond our reach, but it’s there. Understand something beyond the language of words, a language that extends through the sounds.
Each program contains a description of the files used, all additional sounds were performed and produced entirely by Sol Rezza.

one of the must well known Latin-American sound artistes (born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1982), premieres a new conceptual album called “SPIT”.
This artwork is about 47 minutes long; nevertheless, the album includes aswell the 4 parts of the whole (“Paradox”, “Aerangis Confusa”, “Revolution as a Loop”, and ”The Cat”) as separate tracks.
After releasing the “Tiny Truths” album (which contains artworks selected on several international festivals –such as the Netaudio London Festival or the Festival FILE in Brasil– and even auditioned at the London Round House) , Rezza presents an artwork that challenges the conventionalisms of her own previous work.
“SPIT was actually born from its name. From the strength of the word “SPIT”. Also, from an encounter with the lake and with the sounds from the lake and, generally speaking, from the water”. Those sounds, Rezza says, “break all along, like the storm. There’s suddenly an explotion that changes everything. I think we all carry that explotion inside of us ”.
“That confronts the idea of “revolution”; that contemporary, ephemeral, “light” idea of revolution”. The artist states she believes that “revolution is precisely as a storm, a change that doesn’s depends on many people; is an inner change, of one’s own and the surrounding context. And there’s no need to scream it: suddenly a hurricane happens inside you and you want to spit everything”.
SPIT is an album mainly based on modified soundscapes. About it, Sol Rezza explains: “mofified soundscapes is used to enhance the sounds from the original soundscape; they start to tell the tale inside the original soundscape”. The duration of the pieces contained on “SPIT”, the artist explains, respect the original time of the soundscapes.

Sound Spiral is a pop-up Sound Art venue, consisting of a 12m-long inflatable structure and embedded 48-channel net-connected sound system pulling-in crowd-sourced audio from around the world. Initially the work will show during summer 2012 and appear at the East Midlands ‘Festival of Festivals’ as part of the UK’s Cultural Olympiad. The following venues have been confirmed, with more in the pipeline : Gainsborough XChurch, April St Paul’s Carnival, Bristol, July Lakeside Arts Centre, Nottingham August/September “Babel Spring” the system’s inaugural piece by Sound Artist Amie Slavin will see the space filled with the languages of the world united through prose to celebrate and overcome difference in creating a piece of new music blending disparate voices into a harmonic whole. Sound Spiral is designed from the beginning to be transportable, self-contained and capable of being setup pretty-much anywhere. The entire system will fit in a typical white van requiring only 2 people to install, and will go from delivery to running in a morning. The legacy intention of the project is to reduce the cost of bringing innovative large-scale Sound Art pieces and events to new audiences by providing both venue and playback hardware in one easy to manage, flexible rig.
