“The Maltese artist created an unparalleled sensitising atmosphere […] Spiteri demonstrated an extraordinary talent for questioning the possibilities of the objects surrounding him and converting the insights gained into sounds. His performance demonstrated a singular, aesthetic fascination”

From “Beauty in the Unknown”, Benedikt Stegemann, Frankfurter Allgemeine, 10th November 2015
