Who is It?

With “Who is It?” Mattia Capelletti focuses on vocal timbre, a sound quality that allows for the identification of the speaker and draws a politics of listening based on recognition and conditioned by specific cultural norms.

The construction of identity is articulated around vocal timbre through collective processes that involve both the speaker and the listener. By no means bound to an immutable corporeality, unlike it is generally considered, timbre is rather to be understood as an intersubjective experiment in which the voice welcomes the other through its infinite possibilities, disregarding expectations and disrupting normative binarisms.
