The newest feature of the 2013 edition of FRINGE, a section of Torino Jazz Festival, is “Fringe in the Box”. The Box curated by the musicians, producers and Turin-based djs Ugo Basile and Francesco Pistoi in conjunction with the artistic curator of FRINGE Furio di Castri stems from the desire to chart a new path of interaction and exchange between the world of jazz and the of electronic music.
The idea behind the "Fringe in the Box" is the sampling of instrumental performances of internationally renowned musicians from all around the world performing live into a prestigious apartment in the old heat of Turin. Fringe in the Box produced an intriguing music library which was sent in real time to producers around the world, so that they can deconstruct, modify and reassemble it with the objective of creating new music.
The music tracks produced by this unique virtual orchestra are part of a series of vinyl records showcasing the unique interaction between jazz virtuosi and electronic music producers. The international producers involved in the first vinyl release are Andrea Ferlin, Hugo, Tboy and Brandumize. The musical sessions of "FIB" are reserved for the musicians involved in the project.
