Speculative Speeches (Workers of the World – Relax) is a film based on dialogues I pronounce as voice training exercises. During the film, I use my voice to exploit different tonalities, rhythms, timbres and modalities, investigating the potential of the voice in order to understand how it can affect and influence an audience in contexts such as presentations, lessons, public speeches or conferences etc. The work features studio recordings during which I trained my voice through error, repetition and correction, using this structure as a tool to reveal and dissect a situation of speculation that I personally experienced.

Speculative Speeches (Workers of the World – Relax) is a film based on actual phone calls I recorded over the course of 2011.
