ALFA MITO CLUB TO CLUB 2013: THE FESTIVAL IN TORINO/ITALY FROM 7th TO 10th NOVEMBER

#C2C13 is the 13th edition of Alfa MiTo Club To Club, the most important music, art and electronic culture festival in Italy: at a time of intense economic and generational change, the innovative formula of Club To Club Alfa MiTo, able to "twin" avantgarde and pop, music and art, brought the festival to a constant international and domestic growth, which last year took it to a record attendance of 30,000 people. It will take place in Torino from 7th to 10th November 2013, during a key week for contemporary art (in the same days as ARTissima and Luci D'Artista), ready to give life to one of the most significant and eagerly awaited editions in its history.

 

The theme chosen for 2013 by Alfa MiTo Club To Club is TWINS!, symbolizing the partnership which ideally binds Torino to other cities where the festival will move -starting from London, where the European preview will take place on Thursday 19th September with Diamond Version and Niños du Brasil headlining - along with the ability to create an authentic community among all the artists who will take part in it and its twin festivals, who have been sharing the same attitude and inspiration (one of them being the prestigious MUTEK, a global network dedicated to electronic culture based in Montreal).

 

12 Italian exclusives, 1 European exclusive, 4 absolute premieres, more than 35 artists from all over the world (USA, UK, Russia, Germany, Norway, Spain, Italy) representing the best contemporary mix in creativity and music which made Club To Club Alfa MiTo one of the most successful events in Europe.

 

The first 26 names in the line-up of #C2C13 have already been announced: they include some of the most acclaimed and visionary international musicians, such as the eclectic Four Tet, who after scoring remixes for artists including Radiohead, The xx and Justin Timberlake finally has a new album coming out very soon, the guru of electronic psychedelia James Holden, fresh from releasing the acclaimed The Inheritors; the oneiric Jon Hopkins, here introducing his recent album Immunity; the noisy duo Fuck Buttons -who contributed to the soundtrack for the opening of London Olympics last year- and Modeselektor with its hot DJ set.

 

Of course there will be room for some of the most innovative names in today's club music scene: for example, Todd Terje, a true hero of Norwegian cosmic/nu-disco sound, or Bristolian dj/producer Julio Bashmore, one of the best in combining house music with UK Bass culture, and John Talabot, who will be presenting a DJ set with an original Balearic flavour.

 

And then some of the best specialists in the many variations and evolutions of dub: from a teacher and veteran of the genre like Adrian Sherwood, here in a project which sees him teaming up with Pinch, to an acclaimed British DJ like Ben UFO, going through the very personal hybrid sound by Machinedrum, the tech-jungle crossover created by Lee Gamble and the wave-disco style by Factory Floor.

 

Sharing the stage with all these artists, there will be some of the most important new acts in the scene (Rustie, Koreless, Kyle Hall, Objekt), thus confirming the prestige of the event as well as its natural vocation to talent scouting.

 

Many of the artists in the #C2C13 bill move with ease on the border between music and contemporary art, from video art to performance: they include the exceptional Dinos Chapman, Nico Vascellari's Niños Du Brasil, Diamond Version aka Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Byetone, Andy Stott, Forest Swords, The Haxan Cloak, Holly Herndon.

 

Four days and four nights of non-stop shows and sounds, which will twist and turn throughout the most heterogeneous and striking locations in the city of Torino: contemporary art center Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, the baroque Teatro Carignano, the post-industrial settings of Cantieri OGR - Officine Grandi Riparazioni, Lingotto Fiere and Mirafiori Motor Village, as well as the former elementary school turned music venue Hiroshima Mon Amour.

 

Further adding to its rich programme, A Great Symphony for Torino will be a new special project made for #C2C13 and British Council –in the occasion of Contemporary Arts Torino-Piemonte, Luci d’Artista and ARTissima– by one of the most important contemporary musicians and producers, Kode9 (Hyperdub label founder, who signed the likes of Burial). He will be the art director of a new original soundtrack for the city, made by some young talents in the local scene for Torino historical and contemporary landmarks (Porta Susa train station, Piazza Palazzo Di Città, Piazza Carignano, Monte Dei Capuccini, Artissima/Oval, the Olympic footbridge Passerella Olimpica, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Cantieri OGR): everyone will be able to listen to all the music pieces composed for the occasion in the days of Alfa MiTo Club To Club, by just scanning the QR Codes placed in the relative areas with a smartphone or tablet.

 

Three previews anticipate this year's edition. After the extraordinary event on Thursday 5th September at Torino's Cantieri OGR with Mount Kimbie, the European preview of #C2C13 will take place on 19th September in London at Village Underground, in the heart of the effervescent district of Shoreditch, with Diamond Version, Niños du Brasil, Alessio Natalizia and Giorgio Valletta, before the last preview on 2nd November in Milano at former CGD - Compagnia Generale del Disco, a temple of the Italian music industry
