Subtitled “Experiments in Sound and Music” and promising “a full 24 hours of low-frequency fun,” the event will kick off Saturday afternoon and continue straight through until the following afternoon. Set in the round in Basilica’s cavernous main room, the program features musicians from the region and beyond experimenting in electronic, psychedelic, classical, non-Western, and instrumental drone music, with the continuous sonic torch being passed, uninterrupted, from one act to the next over the course of the cycle. Performers include Prurient, Bobby Previte, SUUNS, Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, Zs), Arone Dyer (Buke and Gace), Patrick Higgins (Zs), Alexander Turnquist, Brian Dewan, Randy Gibson, Eric Fraser, Ultraam, yours truly, and others. The event will be streamed at www.wgxc.org in its entirety, with selected hours broadcast on WGXC 90.7-FM in the upper Hudson Valley.
24-Hour Drone will take place from 3pm on Saturday, April 25 until 3pm on Sunday, April 26. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. For more information, call (518) 822-1050 or visit http://basilicahudson.com/.
