In this concluding chapter, the author evaluates the strategy of bringing voice studies into conversation with new materialism through her own engaged encounters with media and art works, as a way to provoke new ways of thinking about and experiencing both voice and new materialism. The chapter engages with figures of performativity, documentation, and infra-thin in its encounters with various works. Among these are her own collaborative artworks, Talking about the Weather and Coalface, which were driven by emotional, ethical and political—new materialist—concerns for the environment and which helped her along her path to new materialism. Finally, returning to her opening concerns for Aboriginal or Indigenous understandings of country that speaks, the chapter engages with silence, including the silence, which haunts voice and memory.
