David Cecchetto is Associate Professor in the Department of Humanities at York University (Toronto), where he also supervises in several graduate programs. David has published widely, including the monograph Humanesis: Sound and Technological Posthumanism (University of Minnesota Press, 2013). He recently edited the para-academic collection Phono-fictions and Other Felt Thoughts (Noxious Sector Press, 2016), which was published in the Catalyst series for which he is a Series Editor. David is a member of The Occulture, a Toronto-based collective called “the King Crimson of contemporary theoretical pataphysics” that investigates the esoteric imbrications of sound, affect, and hyperstition. Their collectively authored book—Ludic Dreaming: How to Listen Away From Contemporary Technoculture (Bloomsbury Academic, 2017)—is a how-to book for listening away from the seeming fatality of contemporary technologies. The Occulture organize annual Tuning Speculation conferences and workshops in Toronto. As an artist working with sound, David has presented work in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Russia, and on the web. www.davidcecchetto.net
