Being Hear

Gordon Hempton is an Emmy Award winning nature sound recordist and acoustic ecologist from Joyce, Washington. For a vast majority of his life he has traveled all over the world in search of sound. In recent years, an ever increasing intrusion of noise pollution from human activity in his work has been evident. Being Hear is a short ten-minute documentary about Gordon, his work, and his thoughts about the epidemic extinction of quiet places on Earth due to this noise pollution. The film takes place on the Olympic Peninsula, the largest coniferous forest and only rain forest in the continental United States. It also features his world renowned and award-winning sound recordings.

Available online April 20 to September 30, 2018.
