Sometimes you just gotta love kids who climb railroad bridges with cans of spray paint. This pic even inspired a very short video which you can find below and watch when you’ve got 44 seconds to spare. That in turn – and this is the best part – led to several hours acquainting myself with the soundscapes created by Sol Rezza.
Sol Rezza (born April 7th 1982, Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a sound artist, sound designer and sound jockey focused on the transformation of soundscapes into strange sound narratives. Her works are developed from field recordings of her own, sound objects from nature recorded by the artist, vocal experimentation and computer generated virtual instruments used as sound modulators. Her pieces are noted for their unconventional way of working, achieving unique sound textures for each of her compositions through the layer modification of previously recorded sounds. The narrative and the constant play with the symbols of language is a fundamental point throughout his work.
I used about 40 seconds from her piece, Revolution as a Loop, from her album Spit. Check out the whole thing. Parts of it made my couch spin. And that hasn’t happened in a while. Excellent stuff.
