Last weekend Circumstance’s ‘pedestrian symphony’, A Folded Path, took place at Bristol’s Mayfest, receiving rave reviews and much Twitter fanfare.

Described as a soundtrack for a city, 40 custom built speakers are carried through the streets by a participating audience of strangers. The music and spectacle is experienced by everyone they pass.
What an unbeatably captivating experience. Meandering thru #Bristol swith an ensemble of strangers #AFoldedPath @ofcircumstance #mayfest

Working it’s way through Bristol’s streets, A Folded Path encouraged the inhabitants of the city to hear and see their familiar landscape differently.
#afoldedpath is a beautiful experience! #mayfestbristol Hearing the city differently, shaping the way we might respond to it tomorrow

The next instalments of A Folded Path take place as part of Supersonic Festival 2015, following a super secret walking route throughout Digbeth.
"Why are all of them carrying boxes?" @ofcircumstance #AFoldedPath made me think differently about the city. Special. pic.twitter.com/LqWfck7mQz
