September 15 – 17, 2017
A Weekend of Music + Art
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 2017 will feature a lineup of some to the most innovative and genre-pushing musicians, visual artists, and writers working today, with unique collaborations across disciplines.
Past talent includes Richard Hell, Gamelan Dharma Swara, Tim Hecker, Swans, Matthew Barney, Gang Gang Dance, Liturgy, Julianna Barwick, Dan Colen, Sterling Ruby, HEALTH, Perfume Genius, Pharmakon, Guardian Alien, Deafheaven, Jenny Hval, The Haxan Cloak, Cal Lane, Wolves in the Throne Room, Explosions in the Sky, Angel Olsen, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Amber Tamblyn, Deradoorian and Deantoni Parks.
Basilica SoundScape, called “one of the more adventurously curated and intimate programs in the NY area”, is co-curated by Brandon Stosuy (The Creative Independent), Brian DeRan (Leg Up! Management), Basilica Co-Founder and Director Melissa Auf der Maur and Basilica Co-Founder Tony Stone. “As always we are striving to create an immersive pilgrimage to the Hudson Valley, where rural, industrial and urban collide. Dive into exceptional local food, freaky pop-ups, camping, Hudson River School sunsets, and of course the delightfully haunted City of Hudson!” says Auf der Maur.
