From Basilica Hudson:
An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-HOUR DRONE features musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone â€“ sustained tones shaped by voice or instrumentation. 24-HOUR DRONE embodies Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential â€“ pushing the boundaries of what a communal, conceptual experience can be. Through 24-HOUR DRONE, Basilica offers a platform for truly experimental and emerging work.
Performing in-the-round in Basilicaâ€™s Main Hall is the legendary and eclectic experimental NYC band Oneida; US-based Moroccans Innov Gnawa with an ecstatic take on North Africaâ€™s trance-inducing Sufi tradition; Hospital Productions DRONE BLOCK (curated by DRONE 2015 alum and Hospital Productions founder Dominic Fernow) with the machine rhythms, synthetic voices and operatic arias of Alberich, the eerie atmospheric sound collage and hard industrial beats of Dual Action, and the opiated atmospheres of Lussuria; Tinnitus Series DRONE BLOCK (curated by Adam Shore and Pitchfork’s Brandon Stosuy) with the immense sonic cacophony of Dreamcrusher, the cross-disciplinary Camilla Padgitt-Coles mixing synth, flute and voice, and Bonnie Baxter of NYC-based band Kill Alters; Quelque Show DRONE BLOCK featuring Montreal-based artists including Efrim Manuel Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor), returning to Basilica with a solo drone project, a collaboration between Jessica Moss (Silver Mt. Zion) and Kevin Doria (Growing, Total Life), and Gambletron, a queer interdisciplinary sonic artist and musician based out of MontrÃ©al presenting her multi-AM Radio Theremin.
