THEBIGEAR is a project coordinated by Francesco Michi
We intend to build an imaginary soundscape, imagining to have such a powerful ear that can perceive sounds coming from an endless acoustic horizon (click on "the project" for more).
Everyone can participate to the project… we are only asking you to describe the sounds you are hearing in this very moment exactly where you are… sounds in the room where you and your computer are, coming from the other rooms of your house, or from the outside, from the city or the countryside (to send your contribution click on "to participate").


chopped up bits of marshall mcluhan speeches and chuck d from a dj skooky cd that seth stole for me, the windows are open and there are many cars outside, they always seem too loud somehow, a sudden crack comes from my cigarette, maybe i'll roll another one, oh hang on....the music stopped and i can hear a really satisfying tek tek from my laptop keyboard...back to martin luther king with a manic funky drummer, some children crossing the road outside, scratchy sound as i rub my face

it's morning and i didn't get to sleep with yasmin (again) last night
