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").


the sounds I can hear are of my son playing on his computer game, wild futuristic noises of guns and spaceships whooshing, as he mutters often incoherent sounds to himself of his successes and failures during the game, the computer mouse clicking away furiously and the high pitched squeak of his chair as he rocks about on it. I can hear also the beautiful light rhythmic sounds of the keyboard on my laptop and the soft falling of rain outside against the window.
