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 sit deep down in a computer room at the University's physics department. Most of the ambient noise is blocked out by my large headphones playing Jazzanova's "remixes" CD (which is brilliant!). Despite this isolation, I hear the gentle roaring of huge fans, possibly the cryo-freezers cooling down some inert gases or trying to stabilize the high-power laser setups nearby
