The video piece Stimme considers when voice becomes our personal property, where does the voice begin and where does it? Who is speaking when we speak and who is entitled to speak?  Stimme focuses on the training between a voice coach and her client, a young lady who fails to speak with her own voice. Focusing on the instances on having and receiving voice and its pitch, the piece opens up the questions around political and historical implication of voice modulation and its pitch (bringing to mind for instance Margaret Thatcher), its economy and the politics of anatomy. The body of a trainee is akin to musical instrument.
