“The absence of long lines, corporate sponsorships, and flower crowns have made [Basilica SoundScape] a banner weekend for adventurous listeners, and the program, as usual, is stunning.”
New Yorker

“Soundscape is certainly unlike most festivals, emphasizing strong live sound, broad genre representation, and a legitimately diverse lineup; there just aren’t many other settings where an unusual post-punk/electronic band like Boy Harsher can capture a sizable audience at a headlining time. By asking audiences to pay close attention to heady, drawn-out, sometimes abrasive performances, Soundscape challenges the notion that festivals exist more for partying or networking than serious artistic experiences.”
Brooklyn Vegan

“It was a wild, exhilarating place to read my work. I would’ve expected it to be hard to get a music audience to focus on words but it was all pure energy, the space great and flowing, the overlap of that act to mine and the next created this really unique attention to sound that I was so glad to be a part of.”
Eileen Myles
