Vicente Palomera, Voice that gives sound to the gaze.

An interesting essay that links the voice to the gaze in terms of Lacan’s idea of objet a. Mentions the importance of duration and temporality in regards to the voice. There is also a reference to Artaud. Palomera states:
‘In Lacan the voice is equally present in what is heard as in what is read, it is a voice not necessarily linked to the sounding substance” [7]
This is what Antonin Artaud bears witness to in L’Ombilic des limbes: a voice not transiting by the paths of sound (“that flesh no longer touched in lifetime, that tongue that fails to leave its bark, that voice that does not transit by the paths of sound”) [8]’
