A journey of discovery, passion, nature, and conscience.
Produced for the 2010 TCF ShortDocs Challenge: Book Odds.
Ben Pagac is an entomologist, musician, and independent producer living in Annapolis, Maryland. His early audio epiphanies include: discovering stereo while listening to Led Zeppelin's "Whole lotta love," discovering bird sonograms in the Field Guide to Birds of North America, and watching Brian Depalma's 1981 film "Blow Out" in which Travolta plays a sound collector. In Pagac's spare time he enjoys pretending to teach zydeco dance and unprotected beekeeping.
