francesco michi
Since 2002
Works in Firenze Italy

Francesco Michi lives and works in Firenze, Italy, where he also took a degree in Philosophy and then in Electronic Music. In 1982, he founded FORMAT - architetture sonore -,a group of musicians/composers working in the field of electroacoustic and computer music. Though having different musical background the members of FORMAT shared a common research and activity regarding the relations between sound and environment. FORMAT's line of research and operation is twofold. The first one consists in experimenting new creative approaches with the materials which technology, especially the "plain and simple" one, offers to daily use; the second one consists in studying the acoustic environment and its modifications, and in operating on them
Francesco Michi and FORMAT have published several theoretical essays and realized sound installations, performances, sound sculptures, sound and musical machines, radio programmes etc., in Italy and abroad.
Since 1996 he performs in concerts presenting two kind of programs, one with his own composition and one about the experimental music since 1950
Since 1997 he is interested in music and web, as theoretician and projecting and realizing musical web-based operations.

THEBIGEAR project - an invitation!!!

La versione italiana e sotto!!!........


Dear friend, I have taken your Email address from the


THEBIGEAR in concert Firenze Italy

Thu Nov 28, 2002 00:00 - Thu Nov 14, 2002

THEBIGEAR is a project which has te goal to build an imaginary (virtual?) soundscape, consisting of sounds that come from all over the world, from different ways of listening and listening locations, as if an unique big ear (with an unlimited acoustic horizon) perceived them.
THEBIGEAR is at the same time a literary and musical operation:
the imaginary soundscape we create, will be described by all the contributions we will accumulate in an operation af collective and collaborative writing. At the same time, as soon as the soundscape will be composed, we'll try to reproduce its acoustic aspect.

at the web address it is possible to read more about the project and to participate in it.

ON NOVEMBER 28 in Firenze, Italy, during a concert of mine, it will be possible to hear a sonic fragment of the soundscape build through the descritions which reached us.

thank you
