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 between my six networking computers like a shipwrecked person on a lost island. The computers are murmuring gently like the sea in distance. "Bigear" site displayed on the computer next to me, clicking periodically every ten seconds, nearly shy, giving me the idea that civilisation is close anyway.
