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").


A cooking fan, sounds of stirring in a pot. Mostly the hum of kitchen hood-fan mixing with the fan on my PC. White noise, a suburban hum.

The cacophany of urban life -now the kitchen hood fan is turned off and the higher pitch whine of the PC fan has come more into my aural focus. I can distinguish between white noise pitch now. The hum of my apartments Air Conditioning has come on, it's all fans and background noise barely audible until it goes away.
