A folded path is a pedestrian speaker symphony, a soundtrack for a city, carried through the streets by a participating audience, experienced by everyone it passes. This work creates a stunning and evocative cinematic layer over the city streets. It uses 40 custom-built location sensitive portable loudspeakers each play a different element of the music Circumstance have composed, one might be a voice, another a sweeping violin or glistening electronic tone. The audience is usually divided into groups, each taking a different route through the city, but meeting the other groups at certain moments to create moments of harmony between them. The GPS position of the speaker causes different sections of the composition to be played, so the structure and duration of the work is dictated by the journey of the groups, the speakers are also highly directional so the movement of the people within the group changes the acoustic relationship between them, the audience become the orchestra.
