Peter Bufano is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and educator working in narrative media including circus arts, film, theater, broadcast, and streaming media. He entered the circus arts as a graduate of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College (‘86), and he also toured with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus for four years performing thousands of shows in front of millions of people. Bufano's first tour was as a clown and it brought him to the entire continental U.S. even before he reached his twentieth birthday. Bufano’s work in the circus led to creating original music for more shows starting in 2003 with his score for The Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, through to his more recent work The Big Apple Circus and Hideaway Circus. Bufano is an Assistant Professor of Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music where he was named the Newbury Comics Fellow for his work in circus music. To learn more, visit his website.
