Basilica SoundScape 2016 First Round of Artists Announced, ft. Explosions in the Sky, Angel Olsen, Youth Code and more. Basilica SoundScape will be presented in Basilica Hudson’s majestic industrial factory, which has a limited capacity.
This site-specific, weekend-long experimental music and art event in its fifth year draws unconventional connections, parallels and collaborations between a diverse array of artists, co-curated by Brandon Stosuy (Kickstarter), Brian DeRan (Leg Up! Management), Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone (Basilica Hudson). Basilica SoundScape is a carefully curated two-day event that’s been called “the anti-festival” for offering a thoughtful mix of music, visual art, and literature.
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 2016 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, Juliana Barwick, Dan Colen, Sterling Ruby, HEALTH, Perfume Genius, Pharmakon, Guardian Alien, Deafheaven, Jenny Hval, and The Haxan Cloak.
