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").


I can hear the whir of the fan in my computer. Outside the sound of distant traffic makes it's way through the cold air. In the kitcjhen down the hall, the sound of beeping from the coffee make, and the cat chewing on some dry cat food.

The wind is cricling a bit making a low humming sound on the balcony. A high pitched, faint machine sound is somewhere in the hall, but I can't determine it's true sound.My keybord clicks away.
