  1. Sound on. My first post... I've been searching for films that convey the life of a sound recordist, especially focused on natural environments and ambient sounds. I imagine an adventurous traveller recording mysterious sounds in obscure, silent places. 0 results. Unacceptable! The "closest" I got was Berberian Sound Studio (2012), a film I saw in an empty, silent cinema in Edinburgh in 2012 This is almost the opposite of what I am looking for, as it's based in a studio Another inspiration was Upstream Color (2013). Here there is this strange guy recording pigs and other unconventional natural sounds. He then uses the sounds in a synth instrument. I'm sure there are many films that have at least some good references to what I've mentioned, but I will let you guys come up with amazing movies that inspired you in this respect ( maybe even to become a sound designer/recordist/engineer etc.) Please focus on films expressing the art of listening/recording (natural) sounds or music. You can mention films with great sound designs, especially those using organic sounds creatively, but only if you really must :). Please contribute. I will make a list May the sound of silence enlighten us!

I'm about to embark on a loooong journey, in a van, doing exactly this (I will start with Europe). I joined this community after an extensive research regarding what equipment I need to record natural sounds, especially in quiet environments in remote places. I will also record videos on my DSLR to capture more of the beauty of our planet. I will then share my results to inspire those who need this perspective. Possibilities are endless. P.S.2 I am interested to buy an used Sound Devices recorder (any would do) at a good price...preferably in Europe, to avoid 20% custom fees. I know you have some :).
