Basilica Hudson is working in collaboration with international music organizers and connoisseurs, Pitchfork’s Brandon Stosuy and Brian DeRan of Gleam House and Leg Up Management, to program BasilicaSoundScape (formally Basilica Music Fest), a carefully curated weekend program featuring a wide range of music, visual art, and literature that aims for specific connections and overlaps instead of “festival”-style overload.
At the inaugural weekend of the event in August 2012, Hudson Artist and welder Kris Perry’s “MACHINES” occupied the industrial factory while flocked with a small army of noise and metal artists including Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s Liturgy, experimental Orthrelm/Krallice guitarist Mick Barr, and Robin Carolan of Tri Angle Records. The following night was anchored by Gang Gang Dance, Prince Rama, Psychic Paramount, and a group show of visual artists including Spencer Sweeney, Pia Dehne, Andrew Kuo, William Stone, and Daniel Higgs, amongst others
The weekend turned out to be something special and very unlike the usual glutted music festival. Therefore, we are proud to announce BasilicaSoundScape 2013, taking place this September 13-15, again on the Hudson Waterfront.
Stay tuned for more info as we unveil the line up over the next few weeks…
Artist owned and operated since 2010, Basilica Hudson is a reclaimed 19th century factory converted into an art, performance, production and event space. Only 2 hours from New York City, and located just steps from the Hudson Amtrak station on the waterfront of the historic city of Hudson, New York. The 17,000 square feet of a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces constructed of industrial materials with a diverse floor plan, makes Basilica Hudson an ideal location for Music, Film and Art festivals and events. Creative Directors, musician Melissa Auf der Maur and filmmaker, Tony Stone draw on their experience within their respective fields to bring thoughtfully curated events to the local community, while inviting people from outside the area to discover Hudson.
