2021 - 2023

Circosonic is a CS project under the Circus Thinkers Platform where we explore circus as sound dimension.


The circus' sonic world is rich and varied, from subdued footfalls on sawdust to the roar of the crowd. The sound of the traditional circus is something most of us can imagine. But how does contemporary circus sound?
