Cathy Lane is a composer, sound artist, lecturer and researcher. She is interested in sound and the ways in which it relates to the past: our histories, environment and our collective and individual memories. Her work is often described as ‘docu-music’, referring to her compositions of spoken word, field recordings and archive material.
Lane co-directs the Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice unit at London College of Communication. She is currently working on The Hebrides Suite, a series of works exploring aspects of the history and memory of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland, released on CD by German label Gruenrekorder. Previous works include compositions and sound design for large-scale outdoor theatre productions, film soundtracks, live performance and installations.lcc.arts.ac.uk/dr-cathy-lane
