Marking its 5th year, Basilica Hudson’s weekend of music + art is a site-specific, weekend-long experimental music and art event that 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.
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, Julianna Barwick, Dan Colen, Sterling Ruby, HEALTH, Perfume Genius, Pharmakon, Guardian Alien, Deafheaven, Jenny Hval, and The Haxan Cloak.

It has since been expanded and re-staged at Barney’s studio, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming. His anthology, Up Is Up, But So Is Down: New York’s Downtown Literary Scene, 1974-1992, was published by NYU Press in 2006, and he has a children’s book, Music Is…., forthcoming on Simon & Schuster in October 2016.
