A Great Symphony 2017

Club To Club Festival and the British Council launch the 4th edition of the A Great Symphony Competition, providing a unique opportunity to perform at #C2C17 and to take part in the next edition of the project.

Devised in 2013 by Club To Club Festival for the British Council – the United Kingdom’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities - A Great Symphony For Torino is an exclusive soundtrack of the city in augmented reality, whose artistic direction was undertaken by one of the most innovative artists on the British music scene: Kode9, musician and founder of the prestigious Hyperdub label. Under his guidance, 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.

A Great Symphony is contemporary electronic artwork able to interpret the rhythm of the city and to capture its mood, creating a continuous dialogue with Luci d'Artista’s light installations and giving life to an original experiment in augmented reality through music and technology. To listen, simply visit the official web site agreatsymphony.net, updated with interactive 360° photos of the locations, or the project’s 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 #C2C17 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 deadline to take part to the competition has expired.
