Drone at Home at Basilica Hudson - NRRF B(b) Radio - The Spiral Breath

MAY THE DRONE GO ON

For the past 7 years, 24-HOUR DRONE presented with Le Guess Who? has kicked Basilica Hudson’s season into bloom as a sacred wake-up call for the building in her winter hibernation. With all large gatherings still on hold due to COVID-19, this year we will bring DRONE to the airwaves in collaboration with Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM Radio for Open Ears.

Basilica Hudson and Wave Farm have each invited five artists/collectives to contribute a 60-minute performance. Assembled, this newly commissioned 10-hour drone program will be the featured content for DRONE AT HOME 2021, which you can experience in several formats:

– 10-hour Audio/Visual tv-like livestream on Twitch / Basilica Hudson’s website 
– 18-hour Radio Broadcast via WGXC 90.7-FM in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley 
– 24-hour audio livestream on Wave Farm’s Standing Wave Radio

Highlights from past 24-HOUR DRONE event archives will flesh out the rest of the 24-hour online broadcast. 

May the sound be our solace during our communal isolation.
 

An immersive event and all-encompassing experience, 24-HOUR DRONE is a roving, international series presented by Basilica Hudson and Le Guess Who?, featuring musicians and sound artists experimenting within the spectrum of drone to create 24 hours of unbroken, uninterrupted sound. An event that embodies Basilica Hudson at its most experimental and experiential, pushing the boundaries of what a communal, conceptual experience can be.

Through this expanded programming, 24-HOUR DRONE strives to break down barriers across borders, offering an opportunity to connect diverse musical communities and traditions, offering a localized snapshot of DRONE within the larger context of universal sound. 24-HOUR DRONE’s immersive and meditative nature emphasizes communion. This is a shared experience devoted to unifying players and listeners alike.
