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 am sitting at the station of S. Marco Vecchio. Although near a lively area of town, it is very quit. Two youngsters chat for a few seconds, then leave. Bird calls once in a while. The car traffic, although not far away, is muffled. A car door is slammed, then another one. An airplane far away.
