Coming Soon: Circus Smirkus 2012 Soundtrack
This summer, Vermont-based circus company Circus Smirkus
celebrated its 25th year with a time-travel-themed show that toured throughout the New England area. A malfunctioning time machine, absurd encounters between historic characters from a dozen eras, and stunning displays of acrobatic and aerial skill enchanted audiences from Maine to New York.
The show's original score by Tristan Moore drew inspiration from the music of many different places and times throughout human history and provided a magical, multi-faceted musical backdrop for the troupe's virtuosity.
The soundtrack from this unique production is currently being mastered and will soon be available for purchase.

This music was originally written for a Children's Dance Theatre stage production that depicted the tale of an epic journey northward across the ice-bound Arctic territories of Canada.

Relive the magic of Circus Smirkus with this soundtrack featuring all the original music from Circus Smirkus' 2011 Big Top Tour!
This circus soundtrack is a rollicking celebration of journalism in the 20th century.
Songs draw inspiration from the music of early newsreels, the sounds of typewriters and the mechanical printing press, and other classic elements of the reporter's profession.
Giving particular emphasis to the syncopated rhythms of ragtime and the playful energy of 1920s music, while also paying a visit or two to the soaring orchestrations of newscast themes from the late 20th century, Frontpage Follies is a nostalgic tribute to a bygone era of news-gathering... all with a contemporary circus twist!
