‘A Folded Path’

‘A folded path’ is a mobile symphony for 20 speakers carried by the audience.
The windows of a train carriage become a cinema screen as glistening and delicate strands of music create a soundtrack for the passing world. When you step off the train you take one of 20 handcrafted speakers in your hand and become part of a walking orchestra. Each speaker plays different element of the score, controlled by satellite positioning, your journey manipulates the composition, and your movement within the group changes the acoustic relationships between the speakers. The audience becomes the orchestra as they walk though the setting of an imaginary film.
Circumstance is an international artist collective that creates cinematic experiences in unexpected environments. Their work takes many forms, from mass participation performances and intimate in-ear stories, to installations and books that go beyond the page. Using both emergent and commonplace technology, they try to make films without cameras, creating alternate worlds and poetic layers in the everyday. They explore the politics of mobile technology and public space and wrap it up in melancholy and romance. Circumstance was established in 2010 as a framework for the collaboration of Duncan Speakman, Sarah Anderson and Emilie Grenier.
