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").


the computer clicks occasionally, i don't know what it is doing. the table it is on creaks as i tap the keys. Outside, a dog yaps and children laugh and shout, an aeroplane in the distance...getting louder. a car passes in the street and its drone fades in to the distance. A gentle gust of wind and the winchimes tinkle. another car another child shouts
