For my thesis, I am making a book that attempts to de-stigmatize stutters, in some ways. Basically showing the hidden complexity of fluent speech. Also showing that stutters are already celebrated in music, through Melisma, a style of singing where a single syllable is sung over a group of notes. I am doing that by notating interviews and songs, typographically, with a system I designed. The system notates speech very literally. Book is divided into two parts: essays (black), interviews and songs (white). The black pages are essays and its layout is meant to be extremely robotic, lifeless, and almost uninviting to read. That is to contrast the (white) interview pages, meant to show the fluidity of human speech, and that stuttering is on a spectrum. No human is perfect in speech, and if we were it would be uncanny, robotic.
