People like Gordon Hempton are as rare as the sounds he captures. Gordon is a "soundtracker" who goes hunting for sounds heretofore unheard; sounds that are unique; portraits that deliver the truth about a place. "There is a deeper way of listening. When you are really listening, you aren't trying to hear what you want to hear, but you're just being there." This trailer for the documentary on Hempton's attempts to record the vanishing sounds of nature re-awakens our awareness of the world's changing landscape and the things we are losing in our push to progress.
