In the sound composition (Within My Voice, 2018) Thams works with speech combined with over twenty voice training exercises used to optimise the voice, aimed for strengthened professional readiness. The audience is surrounded by a stream of voices shifting between investigative, raw use of voice and whisper, and linguistic reflections. Reflections concerning the inner voice transformation that is driven by outer expectations of the current logics of the labour market, together with a focus on the human ungraspable, subjective quality of the voice.
In this live version the composition is combined with live speech and textile banners.
