Soundtracker | 2009
A meditation on the world's changing sound landscape and the things we may be leaving behind in the service of progress. Pure sound unaltered by human hands is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Emmy Award-winning sound recordist, Gordon Hempton, has spent the last 30 years trying to find and record the vanishing sounds of nature in an attempt to capture a disappearing sensory experience. Here, we observe Hempton in the wilderness for 30 days and discover an obsessive artist on a quest for perfection in this obscure medium.
