The Italian festival is aiming to "unearth outsider sounds" as part of a partnership with fashion brand Stone Island

Turin's C2C Festival has partnered with Italian fashion brand Stone Island for a project called Stone Island Sound.

With a fairly open brief to "unearth outsider sounds," the project encompasses playlists, soundtracks and a series of releases on C2C's own imprint. You can find a number of the festival's Bandcamp-focused playlists via Buy Music Club, with March selections including releases by the likes of Slikback, Duval Timothy, SOPHIE and $hit & $hine, among many others. New playlists will be shared via the Buy Music Club page each month.

Elsewhere, Stone Island Sound has seen C2C Festival launch its own imprint with a pair of releases from Italian producer Bienoise and XIII, respectively. The former's To Be Banned From Rome originally came about as the score for a contemporary dance piece, premiered in 2017 in Turin as part of a joint collaboration between C2C and Torinodanza Festival, while XIII's Invrs Solaria features three new pieces by composer Alessio Capovilla, as well as an extract from a live performance that he played at a C2C event last year before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down much of the events industry.

You can keep up with the full Stone Island Sound project, and read its full mission statement, via the dedicated website, while all of the different parts of the project are being collected here.
