The adventurous folks at Basilica Hudson are once again hosting “24-Hour Drone: Experiments in Sound and Music,” a marathon 24-hour immersive event and all-encompassing experience featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone — sustained tones shaped by voice or instrumentation. It kicks off at the former factory in Hudson at 3pm on Saturday (April 23) and goes straight through til 3pm on Sunday (April 24).
