Basilica Presents: 24-HOUR DRONE
Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who? present in collaboration with Sarah Van Buren the return of 24-HOUR DRONE: EXPERIMENTS IN SOUND AND MUSIC for the first time in-person since 2019.
An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-HOUR DRONE is a roving, international series featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone to create 24 hours of unbroken, uninterrupted sound. An event that embodies Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential, pushing the boundaries of what a communal, conceptual experience can be. 24-HOUR DRONE’s immersive and meditative nature emphasizes communion. This is a shared experience devoted to unifying players and listeners alike.
This year, we wade deeper into the durational and site-specific element of DRONE. The festival will start and end with special three-hour endurance sets by C. Lavender, Fuji||||||||||ta, Photay with Celia Hollander and special guests Laraaji + Arji OceAnanda and Raven Chacon.
The remaining 12 hours of the event include performances by Anneice Cousin, eucademix (Yuka C. Honda), Evans Saxl Seretan Thayer Quartet, Gamelan Dharma Swara, gushes, Kelman Duran, Laura Ortman, Liturgy (solo), Michael Foster / Luke Stewart Duo, Pauline Oliveros’ The Heart Chant led by Lisa Barnard Kelley, Sarah Hennies + Tristan Kasten-Krause, Sister Redhawk (Nea’ Mckinney), Veena + Devesh Chandra and Wolf Eyes.
24-HOUR DRONE will be streamed live on Wave Farm Radio (wavefarm.org/listen) broadcast live on WGXC 90.7-FM: Radio for Open Ears. (wgxc.org)
Marka Kiley + Aine Vonnegut will also present a sculpture and visual art installation in the Basilica Gallery Building.
