Circuli is a generative musical instrument conceptualized and developed by Batuhan Bozkurt.

  • Circles grow at a constant rate.
  • No two circle can overlap.
  • Bigger circle pushes and shrinks smaller circle when in contact.
  • A circle “pops” and makes a sound when its boundary intersects with the center of another circle.
  • The pitch of the sound is determined by the position of the circle on the background. Bigger the hole, higher the pitch.
  • The envelope of the produced sound is determined by a number of parameters including final circle size and time of interaction between two involved circles.

    Wondering, will you make a version where you can download an MP3 of your music? I think that would be a huge value increaser for this app. Best of luck!

    Wow this is amazing. I made my own little symphony and played it as background music for most of the night. Incredible.

    As an ambient artist, this is brilliant. Great work.

    I wish you had Circuli standalone for Windows, if it had a built in option to record, I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    Great job! It's adictive, and great to create a mood for working, studying or just kick back and relax. (: Congrats

    It's been mentioned before, but add an MP3 download option. It would definitely add some additional value to this app. However, I'm going to download it regardless, but that would be a great feature.
