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").


An airplane, passing by, distant, in the sky. Listening to it from a little island (about 500 meters long and 50 meters wide) in a lagoon in Italy. Little noises around me, birds, the lagoon, the wind, a distant noise, the sea waves, about 500 meters away. The airplane emits a drone-like sound, which fades away into the lagoon noises. Peace, calm, quiet, my breath.
