"We know that the membrane of the tympanum, a thin and transparent partition separating the auditory canal form the middle ear (the cavity), is stretched obliquely (loxôs) from above to below, from outside to inside, and from the back to the front. Therefore it is not perpendicular to the axis of the canal. One of the effects of this obliqueness is to increase the surface of impression and hence the capacity of vibration" - J. Derrida
