Just to let you know engages with rhetoric as both form-giver of public speech and a means of social exclusion. Together with composer Robert Schwarz, Miriam Stoney probes the malleability of language as well as the affective power of sound. Stoney deploys the voice as an index to weave linguistic textures that refer to political speeches, formal address, as well as pop concerts and literary events. Strategies of public speaking that reproduce hegemonial roles are thus undermined, while such counterstrategies as withdrawal, silence or ambiguity are taken up for their potential as forms of resistance.
