A Folded Path


Tue 19 – Sat 23 May

A Folded Path is a pedestrian speaker symphony, a soundtrack for the city, carried through the streets by you, experienced by everyone it passes.

30 custom-built, location-sensitive portable loudspeakers create a stunning and evocative cinematic layer over the city streets, each playing a different element of the music circumstance have composed. One might be playing a voice, another a sweeping violin or glistening electronic tone.

In small groups, you will take different routes through the city, coming together at points to create moments of harmony and resonance.

This carefully choreographed meander of the streets made for a bewitching evening, the haunting music a brand new city soundtrack – Bristol Culture

circumstance make intimate in-ear stories, subtlemobs, pedestrian symphonies, science fiction theatre, music, and books that go beyond the page.

They work with the narrative of experience, the politics of public space, sound and mobile technology.
