FEST: Basilica SoundScape @ Basilica Hudson This Weekend
Marking its fifth year, Hudson’s Basilica SoundScape is a festival of adventurous music and art that kicks off on Friday (September 16). The site-specific, weekend-long experimental music and art event at Basilica Hudson draws unconventional connections, parallels and collaborations between a diverse array of artists.
Co-curated by Brandon Stosuy (Kickstarter), Brian DeRan (Leg Up! Management), Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone (Basilica Hudson), Basilica SoundScape is a carefully curated two-day event that’s been called “the anti-festival” for offering a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature. Headlining performers include Angel Olsen, Genesis P-Orridge, Xylouris White, Wolves in the Throne Room and post-rock icons Explosions in the Sky.
Far from a typical music festival, Basilica SoundScape features live concert performances, conceptual sound performances, author readings, installations, collaborations, curated local vendors and artisans, on-site activities and more, creating an immersive, innovative weekend of art, music, and culture.
Basilica SoundScape 2016 will feature a line-up of some to the most innovative and genre-pushing musicians, visual artists, and writers working today, with unique collaborations across disciplines.
