Clients and Projects

Acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton cares very deeply about quiet. As the Sound Tracker® he has circled the globe three times over the last 30 years in pursuit of Earth’s rarest nature sounds—sounds which can only be fully appreciated in the absence of manmade noise.

His recordings of steadily vanishing natural soundscapes have been written about and reviewed in People, Time, Newsweek, and many more American and international magazines. His work has enriched numerous television documentaries including the PBS documentary Vanishing Dawn Chorus, which earned him an Emmy Award. He provides professional audio services to such media outlets as Microsoft, Smithsonian, National Geographic and the Discovery Channel.
