There are very few places of quiet left in the United States. For the past thirty years, Emmy Award-winning nature sound recordist, Gordon Hempton, has made it his life s mission to find and record these places before they are gone completely. SOUNDTRACKER follows Gordon on the road and into the wilderness as he travels throughout America s West in search of these quiet places. Unwilling to give up when the noise of civilization intrudes upon his every recording, his quest takes on new dimensions as he begins to search for a different kind of sound that captures his imagination and the spirit of America. Shot throughout the Pacific Northwest and sound-mixed to incorporate Gordon s own pristine binaural recordings, SOUNDTRACKER explores the sounds and the soul of an uncompromising artist.
