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").


DJ Shadow playing on i-tunes, tippytap tapping of my fingers on the keyboard, the occasional rustle as my hand dips into a bowl of dry Kellogs Frosties, b4 pushing the flakes into my mouth. All of my 32teeth crunch the flakes into a swallowable mush with my own essential added ingredient - saliva. (i am achieving a rythem of approximately 7 crunches per mouthful with the crunches becoming less crisp consecuitively). the sound is coming from within my mouth, making for a quirky and strange reverberating mouthwatering consuming soundbyte. sounds from within the body always amaze me, i start to think about sounds heard when i was an embryo inside my mother. im having breakfast this afternoon after another late night, wondering whether NE1 will ever read this - it is afterall 8 months since i received the mail, it's just that i came across it again just now and decided this time to act. i-tunes skips to another track - on random - it's groove armada, i skip again, something classical, and again DJ Hype Super Sharp Shooter - this will set me up nicely for the day.

Take care and have fun! x (facoltative)
