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").


music from my stereo featuring jazz piano, base, and snares. Rain through my wide open windows. A siren moving up and down in pitch. A louder siren, closer but more insistent. An airplane overhead. A wind picks up and moves the leaves heavy with rain in a rush like an exhale . The train, underneath my apartment, louder in vibration than sound. A powersaw. A saxaphone has joined the conversation on the stereo.
