I learned about the acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton when he was interviewed by Krista Tippett on her podcast On Being a while ago & imagined in wonder the magic of his occupation. After dedicating his life to studying soundscapes, he had lost his hearing... so strange & mysterious this life we come to know... I just came across this short film called Being Hear on National Geographic's short film showcase to share with you if you haven't watched/listened to it. Please put on some headphones & take a lovely journey of the sound of nature for a few minutes with Gordon Hempton... Enjoy!
