那时候Dan Gibson的公司，就以擅长捕捉自然界的声音而著名，他们制作的自然电影，音画同步，在那时可是一个创举。进入80年代他更是发明了丹·吉布森抛物线定点收音麦克风（Dan Gibson Parabolic Microphone），以便更清晰的捕获自然界中独特的声响。
于是，1983年，以 Dan Gibson至爱的歌曲，艾灵顿公爵的In My Solitude（我的孤独）命名，专注于自然声响的Solitudes公司成立了。这之后，Dan Gibson的南征北伐，Solitudes公司诞生了无数自然音乐经典，那些采集自人迹罕至的海角天涯的自然声响，配上Ron Allen、Howard Baer、Claude Desjardins等音乐人空灵舒缓的音乐，带着我们回到那个纯净的古老的地球。
2004年Dan Gibson推出了自己的第一张DVD，名叫《Natural Beauty》（自然魅力）。
Dan Gibson (January 19, 1922 in Montreal – March 18, 2006) was a Canadian photographer, cinematographer and sound recordist. During the late 1940s, Dan Gibson took photographs and made nature films, including Audubon Wildlife Theatre. Dan produced many films and television series through which he learned how to record wildlife sound. He pioneered techniques of recording, and also helped design equipment to optimize results, including the “Dan Gibson Parabolic Microphone”. Some of his early recordings of the 1950s and 1960s were released on LP records, and started his Solitudes series, which was introduced in 1981.
Dan is well regarded for his contributions to the Friends of Algonquin Park, and his dedication to the Algonquin Park Residents Association. Having a lease of land in Algonquin Provincial Park gave Dan and his family (Wife: Helen, Children: Mary-Jane or "Kirkie," Holly, Dan, and Gordon) a unique opportunity to connect with nature, and it certainly fueled his passion for the study, preservation and interaction with wildlife.
In 1994, Dan was awarded The Order of Canada for his environmental works. In 1997, Dan was awarded the Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award at the Juno Awards ceremony in Hamilton, Ontario.
In 2004, he released his first DVD, Natural Beauty, which was originally shot in High Definition.
Dan died in 2006.
