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").


whoosh - an open window and a fan while my students take exams, car swooshes as street traffic passes by, the faint sound oe a woman answering her cell phone, and the rumble of the ventilation. swishes as fingers cruise the textbooks, searching for hints to answers. tinitis crickets in my old ears ringing slightly above all else. and the clicks as i type. my voice saying "five more minutes!" a sign from the back. people greeting on the street. happy voices.
