Basilica Hudson & Le Guess Who? present 24-HOUR DRONE: NUMBER 9 as part of Fat Out Fest 2017. Fat Out Til You Pass Out is an independent promotions crew based in Salford, UK. Since its founding in 2007, Fat Out has grown from humble DIY punk roots into a force to be reckoned with in the Salford/Manchester independent music scene. Currently working within the confines of a long-term programming residency at Islington Mill, Fat Out will present its fourth Fat Out Festival, a collaborative celebration of music and visual arts, on April 14 – 16, 2017.

Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who? curated one of Fat Out Fest’s stages, presenting a nine-hour installment of DRONE at the Fat Out’s Burrow Stage inside the Islington Mill club space. Other curatorial partners included Lisa Meyer (Capsule/ Supersonic, UK), Anthony Chalmers (Baba Yaga’s Hut, UK), John Doran (The Quietus, UK), Garth Be (Sweet Sticky, UK) and Joaquim Durães (Lovers & Lollypops, PT).

Basilica Hudson and Winnipeg New Music Festival present

Featuring William Basinski, Melissa Auf der Maur + Jessica Moss, Matthew Patton, Lubomyr Melnyk, Ben Shemie (SUUNS), Andy Rudolph, Fjóla Evans + Travis Harrison, Burden (Doreen Girard + Caitlin Hutchinson), Keri Latimer, Charles Curtis (La Monte Young), Miles Macdonell Symphony Singers, Greenhouse, Jessica Rosen + Alberto Cerro, Liam Ross Gibson + Tristan Zaba, Andrew Balfour, Reinhard Jucknat, Mike Thompson, Al Schroeder

12-HOUR WINTER DRONE took place in partnership with the Winnipeg New Music Festival, an initiative of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in its 26th year. The WSO is integral to Winnipeg’s rich cultural life, delighting more than 225,000 audience members each year with innovative programming and musical excellence. The WSO presents educational programs for more than 40,000 students annually and tours to communities across Manitoba.

Bringing DRONE to Winnipeg for the first time as a 12-hour installment during winter’s depths as part of a significant new music festival was a divine opportunity to invite the threads of the region’s culture to weave into one. Much like the “Canadian Mosaic” Canadians are raised to embrace and respect (the opposite of the “American Melting Pot”), this event hopes to reflect cultures ancient, contemporary and foreign as one.
