Basilica’s 2019 24-Hour Drone Festival is This Weekend, Apr 27 – 28

Basilica Hudson‘s season opener, the annual 24-Hour Drone Experiments in Sound & Music, is this weekend, April 27 and 28, 2019. The annual festival, presented by Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?, is a roving, international series featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drones (sustained tones shaped by voice or instrumentation) to create 24 hours of unbroken, uninterrupted sound.

Escape the tight hands of time in a long-form, endurance homage to sound. An all-encompassing, immersive event, 24-HOUR DRONE features musicians and sound artists experimenting with sustained tones, creating a full twenty-four hours of unbroken sound.

Droners are free to come and go over the twenty-four hours, but those who make the commitment to this long-duration work will be rewarded with the intangible feeling of meditative contentment, pure bliss, and communal collaboration.
