In 2001 Lane’s The Emergence of the Sonic Symbol: Soundscape, History and Memory delivered at the Sound Practice Conference explored the possibilities for developing new sound works that deal with history and memory.
Since then she has conducted practice-based and scholarly research into this area. In 2006 she published a paper in the above volume of Organised Sound entitled Voices from the Past: Compositional Approaches to using Recorded Speech. This expanded on her earlier research by investigating some of the ways in which sound artists, sound poets and composers working with history and memory have used speech, specifically archive or oral history material in a variety of genres. In the paper she referred to previous works Hidden Lives (1999) and Hidden Lives 2: The House of Memory (2001). Extracts from both these works are published on the 2006 Organised Sound DVD.
In her 2004 book Sounding Art: Eight Literary Excursions through Electronic Music Katharine Norman writes extensively about Hidden Lives:
“…intelligible words start to emerge….the sounds word is made from flurries of vocal fragments….that gradually build into swishing repetitive surges…..There are fleeting moments where fragments become phonemes and a vowel sound leans towards the possibility of speech…”
The further development of this practice-based research into composition with spoken word material has recently focused Lane on the identification and development of creative tools and techniques. Since 2005 Dr Edward Kelly has been developing Speechcutter a compositional tool which can process and transform multiple soundfiles of speech to her specification.
In 2006 she was invited to speak about her compositional use of archive material at Access Sound File part of Kill Your Timid Notions Festival, Dundee.
