How aware are you of sound pollution? Maybe we need to return to the pure sound of nature in order to reset our noise meters. Acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton will guide us in Being Hear

“There are vanishingly few places left on land untouched by human-made sounds, and those quiet areas are shrinking every year. No one knows this better than the US sound recordist and acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton, an Emmy award-winner who specializes in capturing the sounds of nature. At once a profile, a guided meditation and a call to action, Being Hear follows Hempton as he records sounds on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula – a National Park that contains the continental United States’ only rainforest.” ~ Aeon
