Journal article / To See with Your Ear: A Study of Cathy Lane’s Sound Installation in Fort Kochi

Mariadass, Vasanthi. ‘Reverberation from the Waves: To See with your Ear’. Oxford Art Journal. Published ahead of print, 15 March 2019.

Excerpt: ‘The soundscapes from Lane’s work attest to the predicaments of the Kochi port environment: the waves, the conversations of workers, the sounds of ships entering, leaving, docking, and passing by – all of these leave sonic traces that write themselves on the tympana of participants’ ears.

In addition, it must be remarked that the reverberations of the waves consistently underline and remain as an axis around which the other audio elements revolve; or conversely, the recital of the waves folds around them.’
