The lecture examines vocal artistic noise practice as a performed act of transgression.
It explores questions of otherness, of uniqueness and individuality, of revelation of the natural
and the performance of the unnatural, and of noise as a decentering, deterritorializing
act. Vocal noise is transgressive through its erasure of vocal uniqueness: vocal noise
largely eliminates the individual identifiability of the voice, severing the voice from the Self,
in both ‘authentic’ and ‘staged’ forms
