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").


It's kind of a hissing sound, it remainds of a snake. But it´s actually the fan of my laptop. This is the sound that is near me. Faraway at a distance I hear sounds of a door bang (it's wood) and cups and plates coming out of the washing machine and being put into their cabinets. There is a second hissing sound from my air conditioning warming the room. On the outside right now there's silence, a countryside silence
