Konoyo (“the world over here”), Hecker’s ninth studio album is available on Kranky/Sunblind Music. "This Life," the opening track, introduces listeners to a brilliant collection of elegant, ambient soundscapes.

Hecker’s PhD thesis on urban noise, The era of megaphonics: on the productivity of loud sound, 1880-1930, completed at McGill University in 2014, is available to read online.
