ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter Bufano has composed scores for Big Apple Circus, Bindlestiff Circus, Spiegelworld, and Circus Smirkus. This album of twenty nine instrumentals marks his fifth original score for Smirkus.
Under the direction of Mark Lonergan, in their fourth collaboration, Bufano has created a world from a time gone by. The influences of early jazz, late classical, musical theater, and the international tradition of circus all come together, bound by Bufano's unique compositional voice.
The song titles come from acts or performers for which they were composed.
The "chicken and egg" of the creation? The show started with a concept and that's where the music starts - themes. Then a script and the music became 40* individual songs (or "cues"). Then revisions as the director and individual act creators bring their own ideas to the show. Finally the length and roadmap of each cue is adjusted during the rehearsals to match the exact timing of the acts.
This recording is the "composer demos" rendered via virtual instruments at the composer's studio. The accordion is a real instrument (performed by Bufano) and the whistling on "The Starling" is performed by Lis Craft.
*Some music completed in the final days of rehearsal could not be included in this recording.
