20090602125353Gordon Hempton might not be a household name, but thanks to a recent Newsweek article, many Americans are discovering his fascinating work.

Hempton is the author of One Square Inch of Silence: One Man’s Search for Natural Silence in a Noisy World, and is on a quest to save America’s quiet spaces (read: areas where all you hear are the sounds of nature).

He believes that this type of silence, which can only be found in settings undisturbed by human activity, are totally underrated and profoundly contribute to our well-being.

Hempton explains:

“I like to think that if you record nature authentically, not only are you given a moment pleasure, but you’re given a very important message, which is ‘the earth is a beautiful place and it’s worth preserving.’ It’s not about the sound recording, it’s about the place.” Adding, “Silence is rapidly disappearing…[and] there are a fewer than a dozen places of silence [in America].”
