Sea Change: Nature’s Soundscape

April 22 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$12

Being Hear

There is an epidemic of extinction of silence on our planet. World renowned nature sound recordist and acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton works to protect the few remaining quiet places from noise pollution so that we may listen to nature at its most natural.

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.

Nature’s Orchestra: Sounds of Our Changing Planet

Nature sounds have been recognized as crucial indicators of environmental quality ever since the publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. Traveling across the planet to every continent since the late 1960s, noted musician and soundscape ecologist Dr. Bernie Krause has recorded more than 15,000 species — marine and terrestrial.
