A Great Symphony For Torino is an exclusive soundtrack of the city in augmented reality devised by Associazione Culturale Situazione Xplosiva with the British Council, the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations, with the support of Città di Torino and IED, on the occasion of Club To Club Festival and Luci d’Artista, and within the programme of ContemporaryArt Torino Piemonte and Torino Smart City.
Under the artistic direction of dj/producer Kode9, fifteen young talented Italian and international musicians have created a soundtrack to Torino’s main locations by elaborating the sounds and environmental effects recorded there, capturing their atmosphere and essence and creating a continuous dialogue with Luci d'Artista’s light installations.
The deadline for submission has been extended and everyone is invited to take part to the competition. Joining is very simple: download the stems here that make up the A Great Symphony tracks and then create your own remix. Send an email to info[at]clubtoclub.it with subject “A Great Symphony For Turin remix”, your name (or moniker) and a link to download your track, which will then be uploaded on the official Soundcloud page.
The composer of the best remix, as selected by Club To Club Festival’s team and the British Council, will be awarded the unique opportunity to perform at #C2C16 and to take part in the next edition of the project, which boasts the participation of artists of the calibre of Kode9, Dave Saved, DVA and Vaghe Stelle. The new deadline is the 10th April 2016.
