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 delicate titter of a bird in the garden, squeak of brakes and whoosh of a truck, bell on my dogs collar tinkling as his paws click click on the wood floor, crunch,inside my head as I enjoy a tomato sandwich,gurgle of water from the bottle as I drink, a rumble in the distance, do not know the source. Thunder? A bird skipping on my patio cover,patter, click, patter, click, stop, patter, click. Plane roaring in the sky.
