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").


Piercing streak of bluejays' voices like the highest note of a trumpet. The volume goes down as the birds zoon up, away from my window, over the snow and into the trees. The silver smooth sound of the the screen, like sand on the bottom of the ocean. The three sneezes from my daughter who has just woken up and turned on Sunday morning cartoons.
