About the Event
The circus' sonic world is rich and varied, from subdued footfalls on sawdust to the roar of the crowd. So many elements that fill the arena: the flicks from the rope, leaves pulled from the knife thrower and exclamations from acrobats who shoot each other through the air. In addition to the cliché of the clown's fanfare, there is a rich tradition of music that helps to carry the artists and the audience's experience. The sound of the traditional circus is something most of us can imagine. But how does contemporary circus sound?
As part of Cirkus Syd and the Circus Thinkers Platforms new project Circosonic this discussion is the first in a series about circus and sound. In this first session we will start with the basic exercise to collectively map circus sound. Other topics on the list of discussions are Can we find circuses in nature and / or through sound - just as it is possible to find mathematics? What is needed to convey / create circus through sound alone? Can a voice create a circus?
