Norie Neumark, in Voicetracks, creates a rich palette of auditory voice events, from human to animal to technological voices, that left me reeling and relistening. Excellent. -- Don Ihde, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, Stony Brook University Norie Neumark's Voicetracks is an essential study of the voice for the posthuman present. Shifting from the purely anthropocentric, the author argues for hearing the voice as a complex phenomenon enabling new affective entanglements of organic and virtual, human to nonhuman entities and events. In doing so, Neumark frees the voice from any single theory or material body, grounding it instead within our transdisciplinary and connective experiences. -- Brandon LaBelle, Professor, University of Bergen; author of Lexicon of the Mouth: Poetics and Politics of Voice and the Oral Imaginary
