This article discusses how the non-linguistic voice in avant-garde and experimental music can unsettle and expand on the normative limits of the knowledge of the voice, language and speech. Drawing on Alvin Lucier’s I am sitting in a room, and on cases of stuttering, verbal and psychic deafness, I address the following questions: How can the embodied sound of the voice be deployed as a performative tool to challenge and “heal” speech irregularity? And what do “speech irregularity” and “healing” mean in this context?
