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").


Mid-range squeaking as I open the window to open the soundscape beyond the room and machine. . . a plane in the distance gently bouncing rumble, foreground windchimes for a moment, and a bird. Very faint hum of solar water pump moving water to the house cistern from deep storage. Pinon pines whisper in the wind, a little bit of rubbing of bare fruit tree branches, and the wind chimes again, six or eight notes, then still. Now just a soft whisper of wind on trees from the canyon wall a quarter mile away. . . . .
