“Not too long ago it was assumed that clean water’s not important, that seeing the stars is not that important. But now it is. And now I think we’re realizing quiet is important and we need silence. That silence is not a luxury, but it’s essential.”

 

GORDON HEMPTON

Gordon Hempton is an acoustic ecologist — a collector of sound all over the world. He says that silence is an endangered species.  He defines real quiet as presence — not an ab­sence of sound, but an absence of noise. The Earth, as Gordon Hempton knows it, is a “so­lar-powered jukebox.” Quiet is a “think tank of the soul.”  We take in the world through his ears. He is founder and vice president of  The One Square Inch of Silence Foundation based in Indianola, Washington.
